>I’m actually surprised the Bush Administration even let him go.
At least they picked a replacement who actually has some emergency response experience. However, I don’t trust anyone the Bushies pick.
Brown had conceded that all the resources the agency had in place before the storm were overwhelmed and that he did not anticipate the total breakdown in communications.
Seems to me CNN, MSNBC, and even FOX didn’t have any problems with communications. Their audiences seemed to know what was going on. At least the guy sort of admitted that the resources he prepared in advance were inadequate (to put it politely).
His limited, prior experience in disaster relief also became an issue. Before joining FEMA as deputy counsel in 2001, Brown, a lawyer, was head of the International Arabian Horse Association.
Did he have ANY experience in disaster relief or emergency response before coming to FEMA? Limited should be replaced with non-existent in that paragraph.
