Louisiana: Times-Picayune wants FEMA officials out

San Francisco Chronicle


Louisiana's largest newspaper is lashing out at the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina. In an open letter to President Bush, the Times-Picayune is calling for every official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency to be fired -- especially director Michael Brown. The editorial says 'We're angry, Mr. President, and we'll be angry long after our beloved city and surrounding parishes have been pumped dry.' The newspaper goes on to say 'Our people deserved rescuing. Many who could have been were not. That's to the government's shame.' The letter says 'No expense should have been spared. No excuses should have been voiced.'" [editor's note: Although the anger is properly directed, it is for the response, not the preparation; the T-P editors seem to ignore the fact that the whole disaster could have mitigated beforehand, were it not for the theft of Congress-appropriated funds that were supposed to reinforce the levees! - SAT]
