Bush Questions Return to New Orleans, cites environmental concerns

Well, even a Democrat like me has to give props when it is due. President Bush, according to the AP, is backing up his FEMA Chief's concerns about the return to New Orleans. The AP reports:

In addition, Bush said there are significant environmental concerns. New Orleans
still lacks drinkable water, and there are fears about the contamination levels
in the remaining floodwaters and the muck left behind in drained areas of the
city.


Interesting, since the EPA and CDC keep trying to convince reporters that contamination levels are below a level of concern. Some reporters are buying it hook, line, and sinker.
