How convenient for Ray.
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin said on Wednesday he was shocked by video showing U.S. President George W. Bush being told the day before Hurricane Katrina hit that the city’s protective levees could fail.
“It surprises me that if there was that kind of awareness, why was the response so slow?” said Nagin, whose city was devastated when the storm struck on August 29 and causing massive flooding.
“I have kind of a sinking feeling right now in my gut. I mean, I was listening to what people were saying and I was believing them that they didn’t know. So therefore it was an issue of a learning curve.
“From this tape it looks like everybody was fully aware.”
Nagin had a “sinking” feeling. Kind of like the same feeling we had when we saw Ray’s (lack of) preparedness.
