Nearly Six Years After 9/11 -- No National Disaster Response Plan

The top man at the Coast Guard says America's better prepared to deal with another Hurricane Katrina -- but he says we still don't have a formal, national response plan for a national disaster.

Adm Thad Allen was appointed to oversee the federal response to Katrina a week into the disaster. He's created a special Coast Guard unit based on his experiences. But it can only respond in localized emergencies. He says the feds need something like it at the national level. (Reuters)
