Bush 'photo-op' visit slammed


From correspondents in Baton Rouge

September 04, 2005

LOUISIANA Senator Mary Landrieu has branded President George W. Bush's visit to a busted levee in New Orleans a mere photo opportunity, and slammed his Government's response to the hurricane tragedy.


"Perhaps the greatest disappointment stands at the breached 17th Street Levee," said Landrieu, a Democrat.

"Touring this critical site yesterday with the President, I saw what I believed to be a real and significant effort to get a handle on a major cause of this catastrophe.

"Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity.

"The desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment.
