A bipartisan Senate investigation of FEMA concludes the agency is so riddled with problems, it should be scrapped and rebuilt from the ground up.
Finishing its seven-month investigation, the panel cited among FEMA's significant problems, years of poor leadership and inadequate funding. The
panel's full report is expected to be released sometime next week.
The nation's disaster response agency should be abolished and rebuilt from scratch to avoid a repeat of government failures exposed by Hurricane
Katrina, a Senate inquiry has concluded.
Crippled by years of poor leadership and inadequate funding, the Federal Emergency Management Agency cannot be fixed, a bipartisan investigation says
in recommendations to be released Thursday.
Taken together, the 86 proposed reforms suggest the United States is still woefully unprepared for a disaster such as Katrina with the start of the
hurricane season a little more than month away.

I'm actually impressed this was their conclusion...
Of course, I doubt they will truly scrap the agency and start over...unless THIS hurricane season turns out to be as bad as the last.
What a mess.
