US Military and Haiti

Today's Arizona Republic newspaper has an article titled "Haiti Anger Grows: Airport Bottleneck Cited in Aid Delays" attributed to the Associated Press.

The article discusses a very, very disturbing phenomenon. According to aid groups, the US military, which has taken control of the airport for Port-au-Prince, is prioritizing landing US military planes carrying military personnel, OVER AIRFLIGHT CARRYING AID.

Why would the US military prioritize military personnel OVER aid?

I am so sickened by this report and its confirmation in other news accounts.

What has happened to our nation and its priorities?
