A good look at the command and control and mobilization problems faced by Regular Military and National Guard forces deployed to the area affected by Katrina. Valuable because, unlike the hysterical criticism heard in the mass media (that the White House wanted to kill poor, black people) this report looks at the actual problems faced and recommends real alternatives for responding to similar large-scale disasters (natural or man made) in the future.
