You know, this is the biggest non-issue that ever got blown to these proportions.
The Federal Government has no authority to step in unless requested by the State. FEMA was right on it just as soon as that happened.
The people of LA should fire their useless Governor, and replace their Mayor in N.O.

THEY are the incompetent ones!

Cordially,
GE

Ah the voice of reason. It is the city of NO and the State of LA fault. The feds have no first responder authority here.

Yeah...and what these idiots are ignoring is that NO's own Homeland Security Director (Terry Ebber) knew about this breech and said it would be fixed in a "few hours." He outlined the strategy to the frickin' press, claiming the breech was a "slow-rise" and that they were going to use Helo's to plug the gap. Gee..maybe the WH took Ebbert's word and believed he had it under control as "he" claimed.
