Here's a link to a really incredible story done by the NY Times about failures in command before and after the Hurricane Katrina crisis. transcripts of President Bush talking with Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, Max Mayfield, the director of the National Hurricane Center, and Michael D.
