Bush White House, DHS Secretary Faulted Over Katrina Response

@ 09:34 PM (103 months, 4 days ago)

Congressional investigators have concluded that the Bush White House and Michael Chertoff (Homeland Security Secretary) failed to provide leadership and decisive action when Hurricane Katrina struck.

According to the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO), the White House did not establish a clear chain of command, and they faulted Idiot Son for failing to designate a single person to coordinate federal decision-making.

A nine page report by investigators says "In the absence of timely and decisive action and clear leadership responsibility and accountability, there were multiple chains of command."

Just think, these were the folks who kept telling you in the 2004 Presidential campaign, that they were the only ones who could keep you safe, not that evil John Kerry guy.

A Whole Lotta Deleting Going On At Bush White House

@ 09:24 PM (103 months, 4 days ago)

Well, here's a real shocker (not!)---it looks like the Bush White House cannot account for many of the emails from Dick Cheney's Office at the time Valerie Plame's name was leaked in 2003.

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, who secured an indictment against Dick Cheney's disgraced former Chief of Staff Scooter Libby, wrote to Libby's lawyers that many of the emails from Cheney's office during the time of the Plame leak, have been deleted out of accordance with White House policy.

Hmmm...just one more example of what Idiot Son and Darth Vader have in common with Richard Nixon.
