Comments: Chertoff: Katrina scenario didn't exist (UPDATE - More blame to go around)

We have seen how the governments respond and how people respond.

We have a good idea of how to prepare. For example, "many" NOLA police have been reported to quit and walk off the job. I've always assumed that many, if not most, 1st responders would quit once they realize it's really a bad situation.

Sure looks like this scenario was on the drawing board last summer: http://www.ohsep.louisiana.gov/newsrelated/incaseofemrgencyexercise.htm

Certainly sounds like a pre-911 mindset to me

It is the mayor's fault. NO one wants to say it and the media covers for him becaue he is black and not a republican. There is a yard of school busses in his city that he should have used to get people out of that city. why didnt he do it. rudy and jeb were both mayors who were leaders in a time of crisis. the no mayor was eating dinner on the night of the storm and bush had to call him and the woman gov to declare mandatory evaucation. but he is black and shes a woman so its not their fault. the gov commands her national guard. not bush. i didnt vote for him but he is not to blame for everything.
