...didnt the mayor of N.O. have every city bus and school bus help get those people out of town? Those that didnt have the means or money to get out otherwise could have been bussed out of town inland for a couple of days to a military base or college. Couldnt that have been done with some co-ordination with the Govenor and Feds? Maybe this has already been mentioned on this site or maybe Im just talking outta my ass. Sorry.

That part isn't the Feds fault. The Feds take blame for not preparing before the storm hit. They acted totally surprised by the severity of the storm, even though the devastation was predicted. I think most of us have made that clear.


Again, I refer you to Admiral Keatings comments today, it will be a real learning experience for you.

The buses werent under water before the storm hit? There is enough blame for all concerned here: The President, the Govenor, the Mayor and many of the victims too.

Not yet, he was interviewed this morning on CNN, but the transcript does not yet appear available. I have requested CNN.com to post what he said.

Seeing as the Federal Govt knew many people could not get out and had no where to go is all the more reason why food and water should have been there. The National Guard should have been deployed 24 hours before the storm hit. That is the Governor's job but a sizeable number of the Louisiana militia is in Iraq with needed hardware and, I suppose, the commanders to lead the troops.

This entire post will be answered by Admiral Keatings comments should they become available. Each of the points you raise were dealt with specifically.

Where were they going to go? Do you realize how many busses would be needed for that many tens of thousands of people?

Yes, Ive wondered why the Feds didnt send troop trucks, busses and other means of moving large numbers of people, like rail cars, tractor trailer trucks etc. Of course, FEMA isnt being run by anyone that knows anything about disasters, but if there is a horse that needs a lawyer, Brownie is your man.

Considering that they were asking for help all along and on the 28th filed a formal request to the Feds and specifically, Bush, maybe you can find out why they were ignored.

Why is it the Feds responsibility to be the PRIMARY means of evacuation? It's a good question. Should the city of NO and the state of LA used EVERY available means to evacuate prior to the storm hitting?

What, specifically, is Brown doing wrong?

isn't it easy to look back and see what the right move would have been after the storm has hit?

Extremely good point. Too many armchair quarterbacks.

Youre kidding right? You do realize that the scope of this disaster outweighed any possible response that the local government could have given? Brown is completely incompetent. Ive posted many links and relayed much of why I feel that way.

Mike, you asked what specifically Brown had done wrong?

Michelle Malkin (of all people) laid it out pretty well.
