Accountability 101

"If there is not accountability for the stunning failures that we have seen in our government's response to this hurricane, we will fail again and again. I know that this administration thinks that accountability is an ephemeral thing. If there is an attempt at accountability too soon, it is finger-pointing. If there is an attempt at accountability too late, then it is something you should get over. There is just a moment for accountability... Tell me when that moment will be? Tell me precisely when the moment will come for accountability for the failures of our response, for the failures of our planning that have led to the devastation and the hardships that we are seeing now."


With thanks to Rep. Brad Miller (NC) for saying this on the House floor.
