Atrios is right:
It makes me furious that 4 years after 9/11 it's apparently the case that the government literally has no contingency plans for dealing with disasters of this scale. What the hell have they been doing? There is no substitute for the kind of coordination and power that government can bring to a situation, but long after the waters have settled there will still be tens of thousands of people with nothing

Katrina happened ALMOST 4 years to the day of 9/11. While Bush/Rove were planning for the death of liberalism, they should've planning on how to really keep us safe. We shouldn't expect the Feds to do everything for us, but can we at least expect them to have contingency plans for disasters? How many times did we hear "nobody expected terrorists to fly planes into a building!!"? Well, that's partly true, but a severe hurricane SHOULD have been expected. God knows some people were worried. Emergency preparedness should have been on the way to Louisiana, Mississippi, etc., a couple of days BEFORE Katrina hit. Where's the proactive thinking? Leadership? Too busy wishing he wasn't President, I suppose. Bush better watch out, there's another storm brewing, and this time it's coming for him.
