When ex-FEMA Chiefs Attack

In response to catastrophe, there are two types of reactions one could have. One is to survey the damage and look for someone to blame for it. The other is to survey the damage and ask how it can be mended. Apparently, ex-FEMA chief Michael Brown falls into category one. Shocking: yet another person blaming the Bush administration for Katrina.

The best line of the article has to be:

Brown suggested the administration's fixation with fighting terrorism may have been to blame.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't fighting terrorism something we can actually do, versus thwarting a category five hurricane? Maybe I'm naive in thinking Mother Nature can't be controlled.

The article goes on to say that Brown had informed the White House and Department of Homeland Security that we were looking at a horrible storm. The thing is, if you read the article he says he told the departments that on August 29! Telling the White House the morning of...hmm...sounds like the man did all he could.

This whining and complaining by Brown, Lousiana Governor/shrew Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Nagin is just pathetic.

It is typical rehabilitation of reputation as practiced in the self proclaimend "mainstream media."

I wouldn't even give it a second thought. Brown is trying to rebuild his reputation by denegrating the President . . . when it is all over he will still be scorned because he was in the Administration but he is too much of a dolt to realize that.

Oh well, I guess that is why one must preceed his name with "former" . . .
