Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

16 Mar

Over the land of the (still for the moment) free, but not over the land that we save.

The Obama administration has decreed that flying the United States flag near the near the Port-au-Prince airport, could “give Haiti the wrong idea.”

…But the country whose contributions dwarf the rest of the world’s — the United States — has no flag at its main installation near the Port-au-Prince airport.

The wrong idea?

Here’s some food. Here’s some water. We are your overlords?

Oh. Good. Grief.

Shortly after the quake the President himself ordered $100 million in aid to Haiti. And there’s no way to accurately count the millions of dollars in individual aid and time that have been sent to the small island country.

But this President seems to think our own military, there for humanitarian efforts shouldn’t fly the flag of their country?

If the flag flying anywhere is giving the wrong idea, it’s over the White House.

No one says it better than Victoria Jackson.
