Maybe there is some political argument for declaring that the Federal Emergency Management Agency “is in shambles and beyond repair,” as senators did in releasing the results of a Senate inquiry Thursday. But many Americans will be skeptical of the call to scrap and reinvent the nation’s emergency response infrastructure, in light of the troubled track record of the new Department of Homeland Security. Especially with tornado season in progress, hurricane season starting June 1 and the threat of further terrorist attacks ongoing, this is one “bumbling bureaucracy” that needs to be fixed as soon as possible, and without closing for business.
