Good stuff.
It looks as if the Gov and Mayor both had knowledge that they choose not to act on. The Blame Game will be interesting

Same facts. More of them actually. Different conclusion:

From the NY Times. That's a suprise [/quote:5h6wdfq0]

Yeah I figured somebody would impune the article simply because it was from NY. No matter. There's got to be two sides to any debate.

Not sure if you read the article or not but try to concentrate on the facts presented not the source. Unlike the earlier article, which was based on conjecture, it makes a reasonable attempt to back up its conclusions with the facts as they were presented to the reporters first hand. I'll accept that the statements contained in it are accurate. Even if they were used, at worst, to prove a point. While it's true the NYT is outspokenly critical of the Bush administration they're generally not accused of making up facts.

At the very least it raises some questions regarding federal preparedness that I'd personally like to here answered.

I generally try to keep an open mind before I form my opinions. I'd like to see a similarly well researched article presenting the opposing viewpoint.

Steve,

Sorry if I misunderstood when you wrote:

Seemed to me you were attacking the source and not the facts.

Just hoping for some reasoned discussion on the matter and still am.
