The White House is stonewalling Congress on its Hurricane Katrina response, refusing to turn over documents related to its recovery efforts or make senior White House officials available to provide sworn testimony before two committees. The New York Times report on the hush-up comes just after the revelation that the White House had a 48-hour warning of the storm’s probable devastation of New Orleans. The administration cites the confidentiality of executive communications to explain its action. (1/25/06)
