First, let me say I'm sure a lot of things could have went better in repsects to the response to Katrina.
Having said that, and heard and read a lot about the Administration and the White Houses poor response:
It is the checks and balances that seem to have hindered what should have been done from the get go.
All the Federal government can do is create new, or change existing legislation to fit the needs of future events.
And, are we sure we want to empower the federal government to react without the chain of command of Local and State government officials?
Because, by blaiming the White House, you are choosing to make them responsible when perhaps, they were not accountable for this dissaster according
to current legislation.
By making their case for them, you may be supporting martial law without a major or a governor having any say so in the whole of it.
Carefull what you ask for, that is all I'm saying. You may just get what you want.
