World press dismay about Katrina response

BBC Monitoring has pulled together sample media quotes about the Bush administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina from sixteen different publications around the world. I’m sure the editor’s selection is designed to show themes of a need for humility and an impending political crisis for Bush, but the commonality among these disparate publications is striking nonetheless.

If you’re not familiar with BBC Monitoring, it’s well worth taking a few moments to take a look at its services: ‘We operate around the clock to monitor more than 3,000 radio, TV, press, internet and news agency sources, translating from up to 100 languages.’
