The federal response to Katrina was not as portrayed – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
I’m hopefully beating Brandon to the punch on this one, but I can guarantee that you won’t hear about this from any of the typical mainstream, liberal media channels. You should really go read the entire article, but here is a few choice excerpts:
“Mr. Bush’s performance last week will rank as one of the worst ever during a dire national emergency,” wrote New York Times columnist Bob Herbert in a somewhat more strident expression of the conventional wisdom.
But the conventional wisdom is the opposite of the truth.
Journalists who are long on opinions and short on knowledge have no idea what is involved in moving hundreds of tons of relief supplies into an area the size of England in which power lines are down, telecommunications are out, no gasoline is available, bridges are damaged, roads and airports are covered with debris, and apparently have little interest in finding out.
So they libel as a “national disgrace” the most monumental and successful disaster relief operation in world history.
Thanks as always to Drudge for bringing us the truth.
