WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role in managing the Bush administration's Hurricane Katrina relief efforts and is returning to Washington.
Brown, who has been under fire for the federal government's slow response to the storm that devastated much of the Gulf Coast region, will be replaced by Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad W. Allen, who was overseeing New Orleans relief and rescue efforts.
[QUOTE=quantum]I'm not so sure; I'm also not sure the facts are all in, since we're still getting bits and pieces. By firing him, he gets marked as guilty. Sounds a little unfair...[/QUOTE]
There's no debating it. He's on record for saying that he found out about citizens in the Superdome 5 days AFTER the hurricane hit. Uh, any major tv network broadcasted people getting put in the dome before the hurricane came.

Complete and utter incompetence.[/QUOTE]
that is possibly the stupidest post ever on this board...and something you certainly cannot prove...
[QUOTE=Warfish]Then I suppose our entire congress is to blame......since his position required confirmation, and he won that conversation by a unanimous vote (hat is 100% for those who don't get it).[/QUOTE]
Got a link? I'm pretty sure it was just a Cabinet appointment by Bush.
