FEMA: The Ultimate Bureaucrats

Despite the fact that Michael Brown has resigned, it seems increasingly apparent that FEMA has no clue how to handle emergency operations. Everything seems awash in bureaucratic red tape.

Among the stories coming out today, it was reported on the nationally syndicated Ed Schultz show that states that were supposed to receive evacuees were told to no longer expect them.

Today, the AP reports that Governor Kathleen Blanco feels the government is "moving too slowly in recovering the bodies. The dead "deserve more respect than they have received," she said.

At issue is FEMA's not signing the contract with the company that was handling body removal.

Once again, insufferable bureaucracy rears its ugly head.
