It would appear that 4 years after the 9/11 attacks, we still have the same problems...incredibly, they have not been fixed...Congress, according to Hamilton and Kean, share the blame for not having established clear lines of communication and lines of authority...America's response to Hurricane Katrina was hamstrung by well-known system-wide problems that could have been fixed but went unattended and wound up costing lives, the two men who led an inquiry into the September 11, 2001, attacks said.Former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean, the moderate Republican who led the independent panel known informally as the September 11 commission, and his Democratic vice-chairman Lee Hamilton said the response was undermined largely by a lack of command.They also cited emergency communications problems and a failure to target resources at communities facing the greatest risk of natural or man-made disaster."The same mistakes made on 9/11 were made over again, in some cases worse," Kean said. "Those are system-wide failures that can be fixed and should have been fixed right away."..."There have got to be clear lines of authority because if there isn't somebody in charge, it costs lives. It cost a lot of lives in New Orleans," [Kean] added.Link to news article: http://tinyurl.com/d98jlI guess Terry Schiavo was more important.--ETurkey
