Impartial Congressional Review of Katrina Questioned

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 8, 2005

From the “Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) yesterday announced that they are setting up a bipartisan, bicameral committee to review the government’s response to Hurricane Katrina, despite the strong reservations or outright opposition from several GOP lawmakers.”
From Sen. Harry Reid’s floor statement today: “An investigation of the Republican Administration by a Republican-controlled Congress is like having a pitcher call his own balls and strikes…Finally, we have seen what happens when this administration – or any administration – investigates itself. The American people will not get the real answers they deserve.”
