Contrite Corps? Are they learning? | AP Top Stories:
"A contrite U.S. Army Corps of Engineers took responsibility Thursday for the flooding of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina and said the levees failed because they were built in a disjointed fashion using outdated data.

'This is the first time that the Corps has had to stand up and say, `We've had a catastrophic failure,'' Lt. Gen. Carl Strock, the Corps chief, said as the agency issued a 6,000-page-plus report on the disaster on Day 1 of the new hurricane season."
