Account of Oklahoma Evacuee Center

I just got back from a FEMA Detainment Camp - Above Top Secret Conspiracy Community: "Jesse Jackson was right when he said 'refugees' was not the appropriate word for the poor souls dislocated due to Katrina. But he was wrong about why it is not appropriate. It's not appropriate beause they are detainees, not refugees. "
I'm not sure what I think about this, because there are so much potential for misunderstanding or misinformation, but I think it is an interesting datapoint and if nothing else, it begs questions of our government. UPDATE: 12 September 2005: Excellent clarification from Chase McInerney at Cutting to the Chase. Please visit this page if you found yourself reading my post. He provides excellent clarification and he speaks from a position of considerable knowledge of the details of this issue. http://chasecuts.blogspot.com/2005/09/giving-credit-where-credit-is-due.html
