A Liability, Again

John Robb calls the federal government an "embarrassment" and a "liability." Strong words, prompted by Chertoff's continual denials. It is deja vu all over again. At least this time they can't say there were no warnings. Or that no one ever imagined planes would be used as missles. They're just saying no one ever imagined a Category 4 storm would hit New Orleans. Apparently Col. Strock begs to differ (and says we knowingly gambled since 1969). I've decided this Administration has the best sense of humor of any in history. Dark humor, but humor nonetheless.
