What happened to Haiti last week has been so widely reported that I won’t even go into detail. Should you have spent last 9 days in hiding, please check here.

But what is even more mind-buffling is this little quote I found here:

With little time left to find those still buried in the rubble, rescue teams were stuck at the Port-au-Prince airport and civilian relief flights couldn’t land after its ramps filled with craft, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said in a notice. The airport also lacked fuel for planes to fly home.

I ask “why?”
