Bush Administration Culpable in New Orleans Devastation

Due to significant funding cuts for the Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA, not to mention, as previously reported, prior relocation of National Guard troops and equipment to Iraq, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina is far worse than it should have been. And now, six days after Katrina first hit the United States and three days after the full strength of Katrina was known, Bush has finallly gotten off his butt and addressed the nation, putting forth the bare minimum for federal disaster relief. How many thousands more will die before federal relief efforts are fully ramped up?

Bush and his cronies have a lot of 'splainin' to do.
