Like an Anthill Kicked Over

I expect Osama bin Laden and assorted wannabes are watching the hurricane disaster with great interest. After three years of pouring vast amounts of money into "homeland security," it's evident that the homeland is, if anything, far less secure than ever, judging by the chaotic at best and insanely inadequate at worst response to Katrina.

So what was that money spent on?

UPDATE: Read this (via):

"What you're seeing is revealing weaknesses in the state, local and federal levels," said Eric Tolbert, who until February was FEMA's disaster response chief. "All three levels have been weakened. They've been weakened by diversion into terrorism."

Is there anything - anything - that the Repugs haven't totally effed up?
