FEMA Chief Relieved of Katrina Duties

Via AP:

Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role managing Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, The Associated Press has learned.

Brown is being sent back to Washington from Baton Rouge, where he was the primary official overseeing the federal government’s response to the disaster, according to two federal officials who declined to be identified before the announcement.

I’m not sure if this means he’s been dismissed as FEMA director, or just dismissed from handling this particular disaster. I’m sure we’ll hear more news on this soon.  I’ll be interested to see the Democratic response to this.
