Based on new reporting and factual determinations some of the hearings above promise to be quite interesting from the standpoint of observer, practitioner, or academic, and always of course to governmental officials. Good job Congress now let’s make these rare forways into the oversight function count.

Oh and of course just for the record it was the “NEW” FEMA that handled Hurricane Ike in 2008!
