The most blatant one of all...
""[a]s of Saturday [September 3], [Louisiana Gov. Kathleen] Blanco still had not declared a state of emergency."
--- "senior Bush official," 9/4, seeking to dismiss criticism of FEMA's response in the Washington Post.
Wow. Sounds irresponsible. One problem: The behind the scenes operative the Bushies sent to talk to the paper told a lie: Blanco declared a state of emergency on AUGUST 26!!
