    It seems that alot of that 800 million got wasted on numerous things. Fraud was prevelant by our own people as well, whether it was justified or not depends on personal opinion.

    The way the story went is that the u.s. government misplaced (stole) $800 million in international aid. The accused fraud by our people is from a small portion of the $54 million that was said to go to the victims. The grand total was about $854 million. Which takes us back to the 1st question.....where is the $800 million that was given to the u.s. government by several foreign countries for the victims of Katrina?

    We'll never know.........

    Well it sounds to me like if we blew 54 million of it then the government blew the rest. Probably on ice trucks that sat around and weren't delivered to the appropiate places or the cases and cases of bottled water that expired and was never given out. There are tons of ways the government blew that money and we will never know what really happened to it.
