CBS news raised questions about Louisiana demanding federal help, but then not putting it to use. Gov. Bobby Jindal has been demanding more federal help for weeks. “We will only be winning this war when we’re actually deploying every resource,” “They (the federal government) can provide more resources” and “It’s clear the resources needed to protect our coast are still not here.”

But nearly two months after the governor requested – and the Department of Defense approved the use of 6,000 Louisiana National Guard troops – only a fraction – 1,053 – have actually been deployed by Jindal to fight the spill.  See CBS video below.
