DROPPED BALLS: BP Is Criticized Over Oil Spill, but U.S. Missed Chances to Act. “The delay meant that the Homeland Security Department waited until late this week to formally request a more robust response from the Department of Defense, with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano acknowledging even as late as Thursday afternoon that she did not know if the Defense Department even had equipment that might be helpful.” Heckuva job, Janet. She was probably too busy cataloging deadly blue-haired threats to the Republic.

What’s really news here is that the usually very-friendly New York Times is leveling this kind of criticism out of the gate.

UPDATE: Interestingly, the story linked above has now been completely rewritten, with the critical language deepsixed. However, you can see the language here.
