Browned off

"Considering the dire circumstances that we have in New Orleans, virtually a city that has been destroyed, things are going relatively well." – FEMA Director Michael Brown, Sept. 1, 2005

It's been revealed that The White House has removed US emergencies chief Michael Brown from his role managing the relief effort and recalled him to Washington.

Democrat senators have called for Mr Brown to be sacked for his response to the hurricane.

His role has been handed to Coastguard Vice-Admiral Thad W Allen, who has been overseeing relief and rescue efforts in New Orleans.

Mr Brown has been criticised over the slow pace of the rescue effort, amid allegations he does not have the experience to lead Fema.

This is the right decision. Mr Brown's handling of the Hurricane's aftermath has been inept at best. Same goes for the rest of the American administration.

"Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job." – President Bush, to FEMA director Michael Brown, while touring Hurricane-ravaged Mississippi, Sept. 2, 2005
