#1 When I was an 18-year-old freshman in college, I was taught the 3 duties of management were "Policies, Procedures, and Internal Controls." If you're managing anything larger than a lemonade stand and you don't understand the importance of internal controls, you're by definition a bad manager.

#2 In a place where incompetence and corruption run neck and neck it's probably not possible to get to the bottom of this.

#3 It was probably the idea that they (I'm including good Ms. Wanda here) could hand out the goods directly and say to the residents that the PR government was the one helping them, not the 'Northerners'. That way their narrative about the 'state's largess' stays consistent.

Sort of how Hamas does with the rest of the world's funding on the 'strip'.

Or the Mafia.

Possibly a subsequent need for the warehouse came up and someone told the press what they found without checking in with the EM director first.

So they got caught, and the upper levels are trying to spin this into a 'Wuzn't Us' scenario.

#6 "Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez dismissed the island's director of emergency management"

Never mind "dismissed," seems to me the "director" should also be in JAIL. >:-(

#9 Didn't our current POTUS make some remark about aid sitting in warehouses several years ago, for which he was roundly humiliated?

#10 Why yes, Bobby. He did and he was.
