Perhaps at some point they will be able to use DNA to identify the remains of our missing federal government

Bosnia has joined the many foreign countries who have stepped forward to assist New Orleans in the aftermath of the storm.

From NOLA.com:

Under an agreement between The International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) and the State of Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, labs in Bosnia and Herzegovina will use DNA testing on an estimated 260 to 350 bone samples to assist in identification of victims of Katrina.

The ICMP is now also working with the authorities in Iraq on finding ways to address the missing persons issue there and, as a humanitarian measure, is helping to identify victims of last December’s Indian Ocean tsunami.
