Surprising news of the day

Chertoff is pissed about the Government Accountability Office's report on Katrina response. I guess if I was doing a bad job, and somebody released a report telling the world the very same thing, I'd probably be pretty upset about it too. My favorite quotes are below. Full story here

''Jeez, it would have been interesting if they had bothered to talk to me about the decisions I made before they criticized them,''

''I'm not going to psychoanalyze the people who wrote the report. Sometimes, people want to jump to conclusions before they gather the facts. . . . That's kind of backwards.''

''I was very unhappy at the lack of situational awareness I had a couple days after Katrina. . . . I never want to be in a position again where I don't have real eyes on the ground that tell me what is going on in no uncertain terms, as opposed to waiting to get reports coming through the media or inconsistencies from the field,''
