"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Katrina Still Rumbling

Not surprising that the Katrina failure is still under investigation, but some of the details are surprising. Here, for example, I find out from BBC that Katrina survivors held a protest march in Washington DC. But so far I've not seen this on any domestic MSM source. Why? Maybe the US MSM is still afraid of Bush? Or maybe suffering black folks just isn't 'news' anymore? However, if you search you can find domestic reports about the tens of thousands of trailers promised to the Katrina survivors that are held up in holding areas due to mis-management -which we can't even blame that on Michael Brown because he was gone before this program got messed up.

And Michael "Heckuva Job" Brownie, is now practically turning state's evidence against the Bush administration. Comparing his newer testimony before Congress with the older, it seems that he's no longer trying to protect the Busheviks. He got used, abused, and tossed to the curb, so now he's not singing from the Bush Hymnal.
"... Brown told senators he dealt directly with White House officials the day of the Aug. 29 storm, including chief of staff Andrew Card and deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin.

He also said officials from the Department of Homeland Security were getting regular briefings that day. Administration officials have said they did not realize the severe damage Katrina had caused until after the storm had passed.

Under oath, Brown told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that he could not explain why his appeals failed to produce a faster response.

"I expected them to cut every piece of red tape, do everything they could ... that I didn't want to hear anybody say that we couldn't do everything they humanly could to respond to this," Brown said about a video conference with administration officials — in which President Bush briefly participated — the day before Katrina hit. "Because I knew in my gut this was the bad one."

Gosh Mike, could you be in any worse trouble if you had simply taken charge and done what needed to be done without authorizations from the frigging White House? Cutting every piece of red tape, doing everything they could - that's what we ALL expected from our federal government.
