US Army managed farce at Haiti airport continues

There we go again... despite complaints by medical NGOs like Doctors without Borders the US military in charge of the airport in Haiti still prioritizes oddballs over serious aid organizations. This time round its John Travolta and his fellow Scientology Church morons that were prioritised with their 'aid mission' over aid professionals. Travolta flew his own little Boeing 707 with a few tons of supplies and Scientologist (a nuttish money making cult, it's neither a church nor have they got anything to do with science) doctors over to Haiti. I suspect, like other religious or quasi-religious organizations they will abuse the desperation of the locals to recruit to their ideological cause.

What's wrong with the US military that such people's planes are prioritized over professional aid organizations?
