Perfect Storm Keeps on Rolling Along

Earlier this week a video tape of George Bush emerged in which he is being told by his advisors that the levees in New Orleans might fail. You will recall that in the immediate aftermath of Katrina George assured us that no one in the federal government thought so, and that the failures were "unanticipated." We are pretty sure George knows what this word means, even if it does have six syllables.

Here is the news item including the video from the vantage of BBC.

Here is how the New York Times reported this story on page A-17

Here is Andy Ostroy catching the Times with its pants down.

Now you tell me, did the Times send TWO reporters out to cover a story or to cover it up?

So much for the newspaper of record in this country! Caveat emptor!
