Our Leader and Commander In Chief, President George W. Bush, on ABC this morning: "I don't think anyone could have predicted the levees would break."

From here (but originally from the Chicago Tribune, which has too much registration hoohah to get through):

Despite continuous warnings that a catastrophic hurricane could hit New Orleans, the Bush administration and Congress in recent years have repeatedly denied full funding for hurricane preparation and flood control.

That has delayed construction of levees around the city and stymied an ambitious project to improve drainage in New Orleans' neighborhoods.

For instance, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requested $27 million for this fiscal year to pay for hurricane-protection projects around Lake Pontchartrain. The Bush administration countered with $3.9 million, and Congress eventually provided $5.7 million, according to figures provided by the office of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.).

This was the big terrorist attack that we've been preparing for for four years. And you're seeing how the government is now able to respond to a big terrorist attack. They tend to get confused when they look for an enemy to strike back at, and all they got is dissipating winds and clouds flying north.
