Three days after Katrina hit, on September 1st, Red Cross national president Marsha Evans
'first made the request to undertake the operation' ... 'to enter New Orleans with relief supplies', but the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness 'rebuffed' the request.

) broke this story with a slightly different perspective. Somewhere in between, I am sure, lies the truth.
