I’m not as down on Kos as some, but he writes:
There will be a time for a full accounting of what went wrong, both preparing for this thing and relief efforts afterward. I don’t know if the time is now or later. Honestly, I don’t much care. I’m too horrified by what I’m seeing today. It’s overwhelming.
He’s right in that dealing with the casualties is what we should be doing. But he’s wrong about the full accounting “afterward.” Look at the picture below (from Tuesday), and tell me that the White House isn’t going to go into full spin mode rather than working the problem. Regrettably, we have to spend our time pointing this out. If we had a competent president, we wouldn’t have to.
