What FEMA doesn't want you to see

Nothing like the smell of a cover-up in the morning. Not content with their achingly slow response, ridiculous bureacracy and callous disregard......FEMA now wish to censor the news and restrict photos of the victims of their incompetence.

Forced to defend what some critics consider its slow response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said on Tuesday it does not want the news media to take photographs of the dead as they are recovered from New Orleans.

FEMA, which is leading the rescue efforts, rejected requests from journalists to accompany rescue boats as they went out to search for storm victims, Reuters reported.
