‘We're angry, Mr. President’
The Times-Picayune, in an open letter to President Bush, called for the firing of every official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, saying they failed to rescue thousands of citizens stranded by Katrina.

“We’re angry, Mr. President, and we’ll be angry long after our beloved city and surrounding parishes have been pumped dry,” the editorial said. “Our people deserved rescuing. Many who could have been were not. That’s to the government’s shame.”

“Every official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be fired, Director Michael Brown especially,” the letter said. “No expense should have been spared. No excuses should have been voiced.”

Because nothing would improve future disaster responses quite like removing every person in the agency that has ever done it before.

They should be taking a closet look at the Govenor and Mayor, not the President.

He went above and beyond to get the federal gov ready to act.

These people are idiots who apparently can't see how badly their state and local people screwed up

A bit of the old blame gets heaped on the Australian PM.

Look no further than the Govenor and Mayor.

They failed to execute their own plan.
