Sharing responsibility and accountability.

An editorial in today's Washington Post examines yet another group whose role in the Katrina fiasco needs to be examined: the United States Congress. So far, their actions have received relatively little scrutiny, but some of their actions (and inactions) seem to have played a part in setting the stage for the disaster.

With so many failures at so many levels of government, I'm starting to think that any investigation should be done by a bipartisan, independent commission. The 9/11 commission could serve as a model, as could the Warren investigation of the Kennedy assassination. Such a bipartisan, independent body would have the best chance of reaching findings that people can trust.
