The outgoing White House administration will next week hold a joint "disaster scenario" exercise with top members of the incoming team of president-elect Barack Obama, US officials said Friday.
"I'm not going to go into the details of it, but it is a disaster scenario where the government would be very much tested," White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said.
It is an exercise scenario, a hypothetical scenario that is designed to test and tax the capabilities of the federal government...
He said senior members of Obama's team had been invited "to attend 90-minute orientations and briefings followed by a three-hour exercise intended to familiarize the incoming administration with domestic and international incident management procedures used by the current administration."

Oh boy, are Bush and Cheney going to show Obama how they handled hurricane Katrina and the flooding of New Orleans? Good one!
Obama will be a change from Bush. That's all the change I need!
