The pinata party continues on Michael Brown, the former Federal Emergency Management Agency head who was forced to resign after Hurricane Katrina.
Facing a storm of criticism himself, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told Congress this week that he relied on Brown as his point person in the hurricane response. And he pointedly said that he didn’t agree with Brown that state and local officials were the problem.
Chertoff pledged to retool FEMA to make it better able to respond to massive disasters. With another big one approaching, let’s hope they get the bugs worked out in the next day or two.
