Yes it’s the anniversary of “9/11?. But that is not why Bush linked it with Hurricane Katrina in his weekly radio address. As the above editorial cartoon from a couple months ago indicates , it has been a pattern of Bush to play the 9/11 card whenever his administration is feeling the heat. He would have used it even if it were May 11th.
In his weekly radio address, Mr Bush reminded the American public of the national unity after 9/11 attacks, four years ago on Sunday.
“Today, America is confronting another disaster that has caused destruction and loss of life. This time the devastation resulted not from the malice of evil men, but from the fury of water and wind,” he said.
Where is the mention of government incompetence that played its own part in the “resultant devastation”? I would think that someone who has decided to “lead” an investigation would want at least to make a passing reference to it in his weekly radio address. “We’re going to find out why you did not receive the help you needed” would be a reassuring start. Instead, we get this.
