Government 'all wrong'..

..on Katrina.

Frances Townsend, Bush's homeland security and counterrorism adviser:
The sense of everyone involved was that we were appropriately positioned and that we had the mechanisms in place. It turned out we were all wrong, we had not adequately anticipated.
Hmmm, that sounds familiar: "...we were all wrong." Where did I hear somewhat similar words? Darn it, it's on the tip of my tongue...

Oh right, now I remember:

[I] also believe that it is time to begin the fundamental analysis of how we got here, what led us here and what we need to do in order to ensure that we are equipped with the best possible intelligence as we face these issues in the future.

Let me begin by saying, we were almost all wrong, and I certainly include myself here.

...I talked on several occasions prior to the war that my view was that the best evidence that I had seen was that Iraq, indeed, had weapons of mass destruction.
-- David Kay, former head, Iraq Survey Group
Well, if you're going to be "all wrong," why just be "all wrong" on little things?
