Jeff Jarvis quotes Michael Chertoff as saying:
We dont ask them to pack up in 24 hours unless it’s a real emergency.
Ouch. Assuming Jarvis has quoted Chertoff accurately, that’s tough to explain away, for anyone who still insists that the Administration has handled this crisis in an impeccable manner.
I can’t find the quote in any news source. Let me know if you think it’s wrong. If it’s not, Bush has got some major ‘splainin’ to do.
