Interesting tape about Bush and others warned about Katrina

An article on Comcast.net titled "Tape: Bush, Chertoff Warned Before Katrina" tells us about video footage that President Bush and the homeland security chief were warned that the storm could breach the levees, put people's lives at risk in the New Orleans' Superdome and not have enough rescuers. So why didn't President Bush do anything with this information? A very interesting paragraph in the article:

"Bush declared four days after the storm, "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees" that gushed deadly flood waters into New Orleans. But the transcripts and video show there was plenty of talk about that possibility and Bush was worried too."

So what do Bush supporters think of this? I'm sure they'll try and twist it around somehow.
