FEMA followed policy — as Rodricks should know

As much as I respect Dan Rodricks' work as a columnist, his recent article castigating President Barack Obama for FEMA's decision to deny relief to Worcester and Dorchester counties was curiously conspiratorial ("No hurricane relief, and no good reason," Dec. 6).

One would expect Mr. Rodricks to be knowledgeable about the Federal Emergency Management Agency's mandate and the damage thresholds that trigger eligibility for relief. For him to suggest that President Obama would personally direct or deny relief to any community based on political considerations is disappointing and uncharacteristic of Mr. Rodricks' body of work.
