Miles O'Brien's interview with Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour

Interesting interview. Haley seems to be in denial at some points.

Here’s just a little tease.
O'BRIEN: Let's talk about the response and what was put into position in advance of this storm. ... Do you have the sense that the federal government has dropped the ball here, sir?

BARBOUR: I really don't. And I think it's very unfair for the federal government, for you to say we knew this was a great powerful storm. This was a Category 1 hurricane when it hit Florida. Now that's the truth.
Does that mean that just because it was a 1 when it hit Florida you don’t prepare for the fact that it may turn more deadly? The federal government wasn’t the only one that dropped the ball.

Just go read it.
