The President KNEW...
Katrina was coming.

The President KNEW...
that Brownie had phoned...

...on the day that the levees had breached to tell him that New Orleans was sinking...

The President KNEW...
...that day.

The President KNEW...
...that day.

The President KNEW...
...that day.

The President KNEW...
...that day.

The President KNEW...
...the following day, too.

The President’s wife KNEW...
...the following day, too.

The President KNEW...
...the following day, too.

The President KNEW...
...but pretended that he didn’t.

The President KNEW...


"I don’t think anyone could have anticipated the breach of the levees."
President Bush - September 1, 2005

"We didn’t know about this in the White House."

"When that storm came through at first,people said, "Phew!" There was a sense of relaxation at a critical moment."

"We view this storm as a ’temporary’ disruption."
President Bush - Aug & Sept, 2005

Regarding Bush, the report found that "earlier presidential involvement could have speeded the response" because he alone could have cut through all bureaucratic resistance.

"If 9/11 was a failure of imagination then Katrina was a failure of initiative. It was a failure of leadership," the report’s preface states. "In this instance, blinding lack of situational awareness and disjointed decision making needlessly compounded and prolonged Katrina’s horror."

Given those warnings, the report notes Bush’s televised statement on Sept. 1 that "I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees," and concludes: "Comments such as those . . . do not appear to be consistent with the advice and counsel one would expect to have been provided by a senior disaster professional."
