Rice Reflects on Hurricane Katrina

Newsweek has an interesting first look at former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's new memoir, No Higher Honor, which is out next week.

An especially interesting excerpt looks at the Bush administration's delayed response to Hurricane Katrina: 

"There's never much opportunity at the time to reflect on a crisis like Katrina. In retrospect, the hurricane's aftermath was the first in a spiral of negative events that would almost engulf the Bush presidency. Clearly the response of the federal government was slower than the President himself wanted it to be, and there were many missteps, both in perception and in reality. I'm still mad at myself for only belatedly understanding my own role and responsibilities in the crisis."
