KATRINA UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal reports on what went wrong, and publishes a free chapter of Chris Cooper and Robert Block’s new book on the subject, Disaster: Hurricane Katrina and the Failure of Homeland Security. All links are free to non-subscribers.

Cooper and Block’s reporting does seem to suggest that this column may have been right about the focus on terrorism and its effect on our ability to respond to natural disasters.
