I saw a desperate piece of footage from Aceh. A news helicopter had landed. Survivors were milling about. One of them was screaming at the camera, "Where is the help? We are dying? Where is America?": and this in a fundamentalist Muslim stronghold. He got his answer in about 24 hours when the USS Lincoln's choppers arrived.
Notice he wasn't yelling, "Where is the UN bureaucrat? Where is the WFP guy in his big SUV? Where's the WHO co-ordinating envoy?."
He might be an illiterate peasant, but he's not that out of touch. Unlike the MSM who are busy looking for angles to attack America's handling of the crisis.
