Hillary Clinton rejects Bush-led probe of Katrina
Edited on Wed Sep-07-05 10:34 AM by im10ashus
US Senator Hillary Clinton fueled the political debate over Hurricane Katrina, insisting on an independent inquiry into the federal response and sharply rejecting President George W. Bush's bid to lead the probe himself.

"I don't think the government should be investigating itself," Clinton told CNN as the polemics intensified over last week's storm, which left New Orleans in chaos and thousands feared dead on the US Gulf Coast.

"I don't think either the president or the Congress can conduct the kind of objective, independent investigation that we need," the New York Democrat and former first lady said on CBS television.

Clinton, considered a potential White House candidate in 2008, has taken a lead role in criticizing the Bush administration for the sluggish early efforts to dispatch troops and relief supplies to hurricane-hit areas.
