FEMA and the Superdome: Letter to Senator John McCain

Dear Senator McCain,
I read tonight on the Drudge Report the following statement in an
"FEMA director Michael Brown said the agency just learned about the
situation at the convention center [Superdome] Thursday
[today!!!???] and quickly scrambled to provide food, water and
medical care and remove the corpses."
If this statement is true, then this shows to me that the FEMA
director and other officials at FEMA are totally incompetent.
ALL DAY Wednesday on CNN, Fox, and MSNBC, reporters were describing
the terrible situation at the Superdome. I believe even on Tuesday
night there were such reports.
It seems unbelievable to me that someone at FEMA was NOT monitoring
the first hand reports on the cable news channels and reporting this
to higher officials. If I could know either Tuesday nite or
Wednesday here in Tucson, AZ about the situation at the Superdome,
why oh why couldn't FEMA know about it????!!!
I am so anger over this. The poor suffering of thousands of
residents at the Superdome. No water, no food, and plenty of
I hope that you and Jon Kyl will at some point investigate this
apparently total incompetence on the part of FEMA. The top officals
at FEMA should be held accountable for this. But I'm sure it will
be swept under the rug and ignored.
