Rescue mission to Haiti canceled at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
Incredible, the lack of coordination...

So, what the heck would the same team do if they were in a war zone? What kind of fricken infrastructure do they need to use their brains and help people!!!! Even the article states they are equipped to be self-sufficient for 2 weeks!

Rescue mission to Haiti canceled at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base


An Air Force C-17 transport plane is unloaded Saturday Jan. 16 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base after being loaded with tons of equipment to take to Haiti. Federal officials said there was a lack of infrastructure in Haiti to support the mission.

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — Eighty search-and-rescue experts and their high-tech listening gear, camera probes and sniffer dogs were packed and ready to go to earthquake-ravaged Haiti on Saturday, Jan. 16, when their mission was called off at the last minute.

The federal office of foreign disaster assistance told the Federal Emergency Management Agency that the Ohio Task Force One’s mission was canceled, said Task Force One spokesman Scott Hall.

“They’ve advised that there are no resources needed from the urban search and rescue system today in Haiti. The reason for that is that there is little infrastructure there and there is a lack of resources etcetera in order to support our teams on the ground,” Hall said.

Relief agencies from around the world continue to have difficulty getting into Port-au-Prince’s one-runway airport, he added.

The team, which is made up of firefighters, paramedics, structural engineers and others from Ohio and Kentucky, will remain on stand-by through Sunday.

“Our team is remaining positive, though disappointed, about not being in the air already and going to help the people that they’ve trained for the last 20 years or so to do this job,” Hall said.

Ohio Task Force One has 60 tons of equipment designed to support the 80-member team for up to two weeks. The gear included generators, ropes, cameras, listening equipment, hand tools, tents, fuel, food and water.

Most of it had been loaded on two C-17 cargo planes that landed mid-day Saturday at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. But it was quickly unloaded and the planes reassigned to other missions a couple of hours later.

Hall said it’s common for missions to change on short notice.

At least four other urban search and rescue teams with 330 members from across the nation are already in Haiti, digging through rubble, according to the USAID.

The 7.0-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday collapsed buildings, killed tens of thousands of people and left untold numbers of others injured, damaged roads and the seaport at the capital of Port-au-Prince, complicating efforts to deliver and distribute emergency supplies and services.

Usually, Ohio Task Force One drives to disaster sites, including New York after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Haiti would be its first foreign deployment.

Ohio Task Force One member and Dayton Fire Capt. Mike Kennedy, who was interviewed before the mission was cancelled, said “New York City was one thing. But we didn’t have bodies laying around. This is going to be completely different.”

The team had been waiting since Thursday to fly to Haiti. Hall said local governments that have been paying the team members overtime while they waited will eventually be reimbursed for the pay.

the point is, there is absolutely no reason to rescue any more from the rubble. a healthy person in their situation will not survive. unless the means are put into place right NOW, to provide the basics of life

the resources will be saved for another emergency.

I think one very important point here was that they only have one small airport there. I'm sure they are picking and choosing carefully from a great deal of very qualified help!

You know an airport works two ways: in & out.

If a plane has unloaded its cargo, then it should leave and make room for another. Shit, what do they need to d -- get FED EX ground and air traffic controllers in there to do simple logistics! What kinds of idiots are in the military (who happen to control the air field).

look, i can appreciate your frustration. but you are directing your anger at the wrong people. the people who run logistics are some of the best and brightest this nation can offer. if there is a way to get it done, there is no one on earth who wants to do it more than these people.

the place you may find a group of idiots will be in the political end of the game. if they said get it done, it would be done.

It's so obvious this is an extermination. Last night, the UN ordered all their doctors to abandon 25 patients overnight. The Dr/reporter was the onlybone around until this morning. Aid hasn't been reahing these people, and now this. It's intentional.
And George W. Bush wants you to send in cash.

And still not one whisper of criticism from the MSM about Barack Obama's incompetence. If a Republican was President, they would be shrieking in rage and spitting nails by now.
