More aid turned away - see why

US officials turned away a German aid shipment for Katrina, claiming papers were not in order (on any other occasion, I would find an American telling a German his papers are not in order to be profoundly funny - Hogan's Heroes, for example). What caught my eye about this CNN story was the reason quoted by Der Spiegel - that US officials feared part of the shipment had NATO rations that might contain mad cow disease. But aren't we a NATO member? What does that say about food given to our troops, let alone European troops?
