Dear MoveOn member,

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, it's clear that we're less safe than we thought.
Four years after September 11th, the federal government failed to respond to an
emergency every bit as dire as a terrorist attack—and it is likely thousands
died.

We need an independent Katrina Commission, modeled after the 9/11 Commission,
to find out what went wrong. But the White House, working off a "Don't Look
Back" strategy, refuses to consider one.1 Instead, President Bush has suggested
that he and his Republican allies in Congress will lead the investigation—a
recipe for a cover up2.


Right.. because the 9/11 commission was so effective...
