Tim Russert grilled Chertoff over the absolute failure of his department in combating the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

Russert exposed the lies that have been coming from the administration for their lack of response to Katrina. DON'T tell me that the government gets all its intelligence from the media? Think Progress points out when they actually knew, besides since they apparently do get their intel from the media, then they would have seen what we all saw.
