Mike Brown, the much-criticized director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, did the right thing today by resigning, a few days after being relieved of command of the federal Hurricane Katrina response. He had little credibility left. Katrina exposed glaring management problems at FEMA and troubling questions about Brownâ€™s qualifications for the post.
The resignation doesnâ€™t answer this question: Why didnâ€™t President Bush fire Brown? And is the president planning further housecleaning at FEMA, Homeland Security and other underperforming agencies?
Letâ€™s hope so. The buck doesnâ€™t stop with Michael Brown.
