I Think They Learned ....

It would appear DHS did learn from Katrina. At least, the Administration discovered the political risk of failing during a natural disaster.

DHS and its compatriots, the cities and states, were more proactive as Gustav and Ike approached.

Have they learned the short term lessons? Will the President and the candidates stay away from the disaster areas or will they interrupt the recovery process for political theatre?

Have they learned the long term lessons? Will they actually rebuild the wetlands? Will they build structures to work with the floods instead of just pushing the water off to the next parish?

I guess the long term issues are for the next administration to deal with.

Let's just say, I HOPE they learned for the long term.
