Army Corps

Washington Post's Grunwald criticizes Congress' relationship with Army Corps

Nine months after Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers took responsibility for the failure of New Orleans' levee system. During the same period, the Army Corps finished rebuilding the city's floodwalls in preparation for the 2006 hurricane season. On today's OnPoint, Washington Post writer and author of "The Swamp: The Everglades, Florida, and the Politics of Paradise," Michael Grunwald, discusses the Army Corps' "massive screw-up" in New Orleans. Grunwald also talks about his book, "The Swamp," and discusses how the Everglades may play into the 2006 midterm elections.
