Dear Harold,

After I sent my email to you yesterday, the AP released tapes of President Bush being briefed on the dangers and impact of Hurricane Katrina the day before the storm hit. The tapes directly contradict Bush's now infamous claim after Katrina, "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees."

Even though the Republicans have consistently stonewalled Democrat's efforts for a thorough investigation of Hurricane Katrina, to find out what they knew and when they knew it, the facts are getting out. It is vital that everyone read the AP story and see the tapes for themselves. This story is too important to be spun by talking heads and right wing pundits - now you can see it firsthand.

Visit the page, watch the video and forward it to your friends and family. This is a story NO American can afford to miss.

Thank you,

Tape: Bush, Chertoff Warned Before Katrina

AP Exclusive: Video Shows Bush, Chertoff Clearly Warned Before Katrina Struck

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON - In dramatic and sometimes agonizing terms, federal disaster officials warned President Bush and his homeland security chief before Hurricane Katrina struck that the storm could breach levees, risk lives in New Orleans' Superdome and overwhelm rescuers, according to confidential video footage of the briefings.

Bush didn't ask a single question during the final government-wide briefing the day before Katrina struck on Aug. 29 but assured soon-to-be-battered state officials: "We are fully prepared."
