You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...

Michael Chertoff, Secretary of Homeland Security, following widespread eyewitness reports of refugees living like animals at the Convention Center: "I have not heard a report of thousands of people in the Convention Center who don't have food and water."

Doesn't Chertoff have access to a television?

As Keith Olberman reported last night on MSNBC's Countdown: "The most desperate reports centering in the New Orleans Convention Center, the police chief of the city saying 15,000 people trapped there. Admit it. Until today, you had no idea there were as many people awaiting rescue at the Convention Center as were awaiting rescue at the Super Dome."

I was willing to admit it. I never expected the Bush Administration to admit it, too.

Democratic Underground is a site that runs JABBS' articles.

JABBS articles receive a second set of comments on that site, which are then syndicated to this site.

It has no effect on the posts, anonymous -- unless you have a problem with additional comments.

Chertoff's comment ranks up there with Bush's that no one could have predicted the levees in New Orleans would break. What a bunch of either uninformed or incompetent morons we have running homeland security. It is scary indeed. Bush Administration failures do not go away, they only get bigger...
