US image considered one of the casualties of the Katrina crisis

The State Department's undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs, Karen Hughes, assumed that the post-storm crime could do the most damage to the U.S. image abroad, writes The Gainville Sun in Florida. Hughes, however, did not describe the flawed relief efforts as a blow to the US image, although much of the global criticism has centered on the Bush administration's response to the storm.
