Bush to lead Katrina investigation

10:50 AM CDT on Tuesday, September 6, 2005


Associated Press



WASHINGTON Buffeted by criticism over the federal response to Hurricane Katrina, President Bush said Tuesday he will oversee an investigation into what went wrong and why in part to be sure the country could withstand more storms or attack.

Bush also announced he is sending Vice President Dick Cheney to the Gulf Coast region on Thursday to help determine whether the government is doing all that it can.

"Bureaucracy is not going to stand in the way of getting the job done for the people," the president said after a meeting at the White House with his Cabinet on storm recovery efforts.

Bush to lead Katrina investigation

"What I intend to do is lead an investigation to find out what went right and what went wrong," Bush said. "We still live in an unsettled world. We want to make sure we can respond properly if there is a WMD (weapons of mass destruction) attack or another major storm."

But Bush said now is not the time to point fingers and he did not respond to calls for a commission to investigate the response.

"One of the things people want us to do here is play the blame game," he said. "We got to solve problems. There will be ample time to figure out what went right and what went wrong."

2. I called my Congressional Reps and made it clear that an Independent
Investigation was needed. What a joke to have either this WH or the Republican Congress do any investigation. They could do another whitewash like the Senate Intelligence Investigation. Bush sending Cheney down - it would be funny, if it wasn't so tragic.

Call and bitch.

The Republicans - I said they need to start showing more loyalty to their Country, instead of their Party.

I got through very quickly on all three of my calls. I was hoping the lines would be busier.

3. Translation:
"Bush wants to lead Katrina stonewalling."

Every single time this administration has permitted an "investigation," the bushbots have obstructed and stonewalled. That, of course, is why georgie intends to "lead" this one.
