Michael Brown who was in charge of the FEMA effort after hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana and Mississippi in 2005 told a forum Wednesday night that the one thing he learned is that “When dealing with a crisis, be honest”

Mr. Brown was relieved of his position after FEMA was widely criticized for its inadequate response to the hurricane.

Mr. Brown who now runs a consulting firm stated that “he wished he had been more forthcoming about the problems with the relief efforts”

He also stated that he should have done more to get the President to “get everybody else’s butt….off the ground, to get the bureaucracy to move”.

According to Mr. Brown his inability to do this was a huge mistake.

It appears to us that those running the show at Ground Zero should heed Mr. Brown’s advice.

We have an opportunity now to make things right.

What was done or not done cannot be changed but we have total control over what can be done.

Let’s gets the bureaucracy to move.

And most of all let’s be honest.

Mistakes were made, we never had a strategic recovery plan and we refused Federal assistance.

We can correct these errors now.

Despite reports to the contrary JPAC has and is still offering their services and there are those in charge that want to bring them in but they are afraid to publicly support the effort.

Those in office who want the rebuilding of Ground Zero to be their legacy should remember Mr. Brown.

As he stated yesterday “Reputations take a long time to build, but they can be destroyed in an instant”
