Default OT Situational Awareness vs Patrician Indifference

''President Bush knew the storm and its consequences had been bad; but
he didn't quite realize how bad.

The reality, say several aides who did not wish to be quoted because
it might displease the president, did not really sink in until
Thursday night. Some White House staffers were watching the evening
news and thought the president needed to see the horrific reports
coming out of New Orleans. Counselor Bartlett made up a DVD of the
newscasts so Bush could see them in their entirety as he flew down to
the Gulf Coast the next morning on Air Force One.

How this could be—how the president of the United States could have
even less "situational awareness," as they say in the military, than
the average American about the worst natural disaster in a century—is
one of the more perplexing and troubling chapters in a story that,
despite moments of heroism and acts of great generosity, ranks as a
national disgrace.''
