Worse and Worser

Kudos to the Associated Press for finding the video conference of federal officials talking about how bad Hurricane Katrina was going to be for the Gulf Coast made before the storm bashed the coastline. You can access it here via Crooks and Liars. It is a scathing, blistering bit of reporting.

And ol' "heck of a job Brownie" comes off sounding kinda smart!

What's worse, this video is the same one the White House denied existed when a congressional committee was holding investigations into the failed response (claiming someone forgot to push the record button on the videotape machine), though the White House somehow "leaked" to Newsweek Wednesday morning that they somehow found it. More on this part of the story here, via Firedoglake.
