Report: White House Knew About Levees
LARA JAKES JORDAN
WASHINGTON – The earliest official report of a New Orleans levee breach came at 8:30 a.m., hours after Hurricane Katrina roared ashore. Word of the possible breach surfaced at the White House less than three hours later, at 11:13 a.m.
…The White House has barred some top advisers and staffers from answering Senate investigators’ questions about the administration’s response, saying that certain discussions and documents must remain confidential. But Brown, who quit FEMA shortly after the storm and left the federal payroll Nov. 2, is no longer covered by that confidentiality protection.</i>
Who’s doin’ “a heckuva job” now, King George?
