Ex-FEMA Head Brown Criticizes Chinese Response to Toxic Spill
Michael Brown, former head of FEMA, added his voice to the growing chorus of critics lambasting Beijing's response. "This is unacceptable," said Brown. "Millions of hapless citizens have been left to molder amid the ruins of their homes by a government infrastructure that is out of touch with the reality on the ground. This is a sad testimony to the so-called 'preparedness' of Beijing and an embarrassment to President Hu Jintao."
Brown offered his assistance and that of his new business, a disaster planning firm based in Colorado.
