Katrina lies

"People are getting the help they need" [Yeah, right]
-- Michael Brown, Friday 9/2 on the Today show

"Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job"?[Yeah, right]
-- GWB on Friday at a press conference, 9/2, in Mobile, Al.

"I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." [Yeah, right]
--George W. Bush, 9/1 on ABC's Good Morning America

"I remember on Tuesday morning picking up newspapers and I saw headlines, 'New Orleans Dodged The Bullet." [Yeah, right]
-- Michael Chertoff, Sunday, 9/4 on Meet the Press

Update: Chertoff's lie is being repeated:
"The headline, of course, in most of the papers on Tuesday — “New Orleans Dodged a Bullet,” or words to that effect. " [Yeah right]
-- Joint Chiefs Chairman Richard Myers, 9/6, press conference

And not only are they repeating this lie, the CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHEIFS is saying that he developed his response to the disaster based on what he read in the newspaper, a newspaper that doesn't exist!! Ye Gods.
