The governor is responsible for managing the response to natural disasters

Behind Enemy Lines is doing a good job studying how we should have responded to Hurricane Katrina. He has pointed out that Eleanor Clift does not understand who had responsibility for responding to the disaster. He has also found work in the Washington Post and in LGF indicating that the Bush administration tried to assume more responsibility but was rebuffed.

We may not have responded well to this problem, but learning the wrong lessons from these events will make us less safe.
