A DC policy blogger asks about the whereabouts of the QHSR, and wonders about the reason for the delay. Is it because after the Christmas Day attempted attack, DHS staffers were diligently ripping out the resiliency sections in favor of more specific preparedness measures? Was it further delayed because Haiti has put the focus back on resiliency as a goal?
I've posted a bit about logistics in the Haiti response on Twitter, and wanted to pass this blog post along as well. Written on a blog that looks to decode Army-speak, it's an interesting discussion on why it's so difficult to get necessary supplies and equipment to those most in need. All the water in the world, and not a drop to drink indeed.
