    Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job, Part II

    From Democracy Now!:

    Newly released e-mails show former Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown was warned at least a year before Hurricane Katrina the agency was unprepared for a major disaster. In one e-mail dated June 2004, a FEMA official wrote national response managers were getting: “zero funding for training, exercise or team equipment." The managers, the official wrote, "provide the only practical, expeditious option for the (FEMA) director to field a cohesive team of his best people to handle the next big one." The official, William Carwile, said top FEMA officials ignored his recommendations and subsequent budget requests to fund national response teams.
