Nico has: …”Well, I think if you look at what actually happened, I remember on Tuesday morning picking up newspapers and I saw headlines, “New Orleans Dodged the Bullet.” Because if you recall, the storm moved to the east and then continued on and appeared to pass with considerable damage but nothing worse.”

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.
