Disaster preparation, Bush style

“It’s hard to envision a plot so devious as the one that they pulled off on 9/11.”
George W. Bush, January 2002

“I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees.”
George W. Bush, September 1, 2005

A letter writer to The Washington Post makes a good point:

I am frustrated by those who suggest that the tragedy in New Orleans should not be “politicized.” When something is politicized, it becomes an issue for consideration in public policy. That’s important.
