Blanco: ex-FEMA Brown wrong wrong wrong.

BATON ROUGE - Gov. Kathleen Blanco sharply disputed criticism Thursday by the former chief of the Federal Emergency Management Agency that Blanco and her staff were incapable of mounting an effective response when the agency came to help with the unfolding disaster wrought by Hurricane Katrina.

"The simple fact is that we needed something as simple and basic as buses delivered in a timely fashion from FEMA in order to save lives. They didn't do that," Blanco said in a written statement rebutting comments made by former FEMA chief Michael Brown in an interview with The New York Times.
