"No drinking water, no food, no shelter, no law and order...Where are the army and National Guard when you need them?" 3 September, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000161

The scene shows two men wading through waist-deep water in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina has struck the coasts of Louisiana and Mississippi. One of the men is carrying a small girl on his shoulders and the other a box and maybe a bedroll. The white man carrying the child wonders where the army and National Guard when you need them and the black man answers 'Iraq'. The reference is to the slow reactions and insufficient help being available after the Hurricane struck.
