Military Recruiters
Showed Up Before
FEMA, Red Cross

By Wayne Madsen
Hurricane evacuees don't see FEMA or Red Cross, but military recruiters show up in force. According to a number of sources familiar with the Gulf Coast evacuation situation arising from Hurricane Katrina, military recruiters appeared at hurricane evacuation centers across Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, and other states long before evacuees ever saw anyone from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the Red Cross.
Military recruiters, aware that a number of young, poor, and long-term or hurricane-related unemployed and homeless African American and white men were housed at evacuation shelters, took advantage of the disaster to recruit additional cannon fodder for Bush's war in Iraq.
