Just a question.

If the US can get eight helicopters from Afghanistan to earthquake-ravaged Pakistan in less than two days, how come it took so much longer for the feds to get aid to the Gulf coast?

To be fair, 8 helicopters isn't much aid, and it's evidently not easy to use the regular army inside the US. Besides, a good part of our army's already over there...

Could it be that Musharraf is a Bush crony too and that's why he got aid so fast?

The problem there was getting past all the gigantically inflated "I'm in charge" egos in the way.
