The First Lady, Laura Bush, waxed indignant against the Myanmar junta – that it was late to warn about the cyclone and it didn’t help the population to face the terrible consequences.
She practically said it – that the same thing could never happen in the United States. Apparently she has no memory of what happened as Hurricane Katrina approached the area of New Orleans. Nor did the First Lady seem to remember the way the government ignored experts who had warned about the fragility of the levees holding back the Gulf waters.
