DJ's right here. Bush knew that it was a possibility that a hurricane hitting New Orleans would be a major disaster.

Every couple of years, FEMA sets up "major disaster scenarios," which map out possible major disasters. One of the possible major disasters on the report? A major hurricane hitting the Big Easy. Thus, he had knowledge that this not only could happen, but that -if it did happen- it would be a major disaster needing major relief.

He also had as much as 10 days advance notice that Katrina very likely would hit, thanks to our friends at NOAA.

yeah and bush gets blamed for katarina even though he did nothing wrong, just because he was the tyrant in charge at the time.  it goes both ways.

actually, katrina's slightly different.  people weren't blaming him for the hurricane.  people were blaming him for what they saw was a lack of response on his part, along with a perceived cronyism that allowed incompetent people to be in charge of emergency efforts.

understood.. but he was in "charge" when the lack of response occured, even though nobody thought that what happened would happen.  he was supposed to be clairvoyant..

Actually, many people thought that what happened would happen.  And Bush personally had been warned of what would happen.  And then he flat-out lied that no one could have foreseen what happened.

  It's very nice that Taylor will have to face justice, that is, if President Obasanjo agrees to let go of him. And there exists some evidence that the Bush administration is putting some pressure on him to do that. For that, we should be thankful.

  But, at the same time, should we not also vigorously request that the Bush administration do all it can in Zimbabwe (where the cost of intervention would be very moderate) or in Darfur (where the situation is dire)? And would we not like also to see a permanent venue for the bringing of such people to justice? Like, oh, I don't know, an international court of Justice?
