'Affirmative Action' Chief Latest 'Victim' of Katrina

Latest unqualified official to quit; when is Chertoff leaving?

He watched as his city exploded in looting, raping and murder in the wake of Katrina. He saw a rudderless Department of Homeland Security utterly unprepared and confused. 15% -- and by some reports up to one-third -- of his officers deserted their posts at the moment they were most needed. And some joined in the looting. His department spokesman blew his own brains out in despair. As a final indignity, he was nearly taken hostage by Black refugees in the Congo-like chaos of the Superdome.

Now, New Orleans top cop Eddie Compass has resigned. The Superintendant's lack of direction made some observers wonder if his only 'qualification' was that he was Black and didn't have a criminal record.

The Compass resignation is only the second to come out of the Katrina madness, but more should follow. Homeland Security czar Michael Chertoff, who admitted that he had 'no idea' of the Katrina danger, engineered the resignation of an underling to cover for his own lack of qualification. He needs to step down also.
