Katrina: Clinton: 100% of the people recognize "government's" failure 

Well, 99.99% do, except for the gang of spinning bitter enders in the West Wing:

ormer President Bill Clinton on Monday said the government "failed" the thousands of people who lived in coastal communities devastated by Hurricane Katrina, and said a federal investigation was warranted in due time.

"Our government failed those people in the beginning, and I take it now there is no dispute about it," Clinton told CNN. "One hundred percent of the people recognize that -- that it was a failure."

As with the 9/11 commission charged with looking at the events leading up to and after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Clinton suggested a bipartisan Katrina commission be formed. It would investigate what went wrong and determine "what is the best structure and what are the best personnel decisions" to make in emergency management, he said.

Pass the popcorn!

NOTE I think it's super-tactful of Clinton not to mention who's in charge of all three branches of the federal government right now...
