  •  Katrina response (none)
    Bush et al had been waiting around for an excuse to declare martial law and start the end of the PCA. Gov Blanco's email dump gives indications this was the problem; no federal help until the feds are put in charge of the disaster area. And then but a few months later, when everyone is talking about bird flu, there's Bush suggesting a debate on the PCA should take place.

    As far as I can tell, the best explantion so far the the admin response to Katrina I've seen.
