Rescues being led by Fish & Wildlife Service

A news crawler this morning on CNN or MSNBC reported 3,000 were rescued by the Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries service using their boats. FOX News crawler reported another 1,200 rescued by airlift.

I don't have a source/cite, but the impression is filtering out that there is no National Guard presence in search and rescue efforts in New Orleans, a drastic change from years past. A story seen earlier, which I will rundown a cite for, quoted an officer from Jackson Barracks as stating all of their equipment is in Iraq: boats, bulldozers, ducks, Humvees.
