The Mean Political Katrina

Rupert Murdoch says that Prime Minister Tony Blair was not pleased with the reporting of the state run BBC on the Katrina disaster.

From Instapundit and the LA Times:

Senior officials in Louisiana’s emergency planning agency already were awaiting trial over allegations stemming from a federal investigation into waste, mismanagement and missing funds when Hurricane Katrina struck.

And federal auditors are still trying to track as much as $60 million in unaccounted for funds that were funneled to the state from the Federal Emergency Management Agency dating back to 1998. . . .

The problems are particularly worrisome, federal officials said, because they involve the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, the agency that will administer much of the billions in federal aid anticipated for victims of Katrina.

French Blogger “No Pasaran” has the real scoop on Globally Warmed Hurricanes.

But, environmentalists are sticking to their global warming theory. They’re still looking into it anyway.
