Video just released by the Associated Press shows that the day before Hurricane Katrina hit, experts personally warned Bush about the coming disaster. He knew about the levees, and he knew about the Superdome. But he did nothing.
Four days later, Bush maintained that the storm caught everyone by surprise, going as far as saying, "I don't think anybody could have anticipated the breach of the levees." While Bush failed to act 1,300 people died, and thousands more have suffered unimaginable trauma and loss.
This is a dereliction of duty, compounded by a sloppy attempt to mislead the public. It's time for Congress to censure the President.
This campaign has concluded.
