Okay, no matter who's to blame why people didn't get anything quicker, I find it unfathomable that Chertoff is defending the government's slowness because they did not anticipate such a thing could happen. As has been said numerous times on this site and others years ago that this could happen and probably would. The fact that FEMA had no clue at all that the people were at the convention center starving even after the national news had been covering it for days? If this is the kind of intelligence we have in the US, we are in serious trouble if this country experiences another disaster at the hands of terrorists or nature. There is blame on all levels to go around in relation to Katrina, but it paints a scary picture of what would happen in a future emergency.
