Did You Know...

That’s the subject of my latest syndicated column on Hillary, Hurricane Katrina, and the soiled legacy of the 9/11 Commission. Excerpt:

Sen. Clinton’s “Katrina Commission” would be modeled after the “independent” 9/11 Commission. I can see it now: Democrat Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco, whose main imperative is covering up her own culpability, will be the next Jamie Gorelick; Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard, the local corrupt-o-crat who got his 15 minutes of fame on “Meet the Press” last week, will be the next Richard Ben-Veniste.

And this time for “diversity,” maybe they’ll call on Randall “Black people are eating corpses…oh, never mind” Robinson and rapper Kanye “It’s all about me” West to share their deep expertise.

Despite the abject failures of local and state officials to prepare for the worst, abide by their own evacuation plans, maintain an effective police force, and crack down on looters, Sen. Clinton’s commission would only examine the “adequacy of federal response efforts.”

Translation: Bash Bush.

I also reiterate my call for FEMA’s Michael Brown to be fired. If you have been reading this blog in anything more than a cursory manner, you know I’ve focused on failures at all levels of government–from Mayor Nagin to the NOPD to La. Gov. Blanco and beyond.

This is not either-or. The disastrous aftermath is neither entirely the fault of local and state officials nor entirely the fault of the feds. If someone is a worthless sack of bones, I’ll say so. And I don’t care if he has “Bush appointee” stamped on his forehead or a GOP elephant tattooed to his backside. Brown’s clueless public comments after landfall are reason enough to give him the boot…and he should have never been there in the first place.


As military leaders now spearhead bureaucratically-delayed recovery efforts and private citizens and corporations lead the way on massive charitable relief campaigns, the last thing this country needs is another grand-standing panel of blowhards to soak up public resources to restate the obvious. There isn’t a single Katrina victim who will benefit from hindsight hound dogs publishing thousand-page tomes with cherry-picked evidence that distorts the true narrative of what happened and why.
