ABC News: Who's to Blame for Delayed Response to Katrina?: "NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 6, 2005 - In New Orleans, those in peril and those in power have pointed the finger squarely at the federal government [BUSH]for the delayed relief effort. But experts say when natural disasters strike, it is the primary responsibility of state and local governments, not the federal government to respond. " [] Insert above added by News Snipet. PREDICTION: The "left" had to eventually fall back on the "WMD" argument and repeat this over and over again to justify the position they assumed "after they voted against the war after they voted for the war". The "WMD argument" for the left to save face this time will be the "levee funding" argument. Expect it to become all about the "levee funding". You heard it first here on the News Snipet. P.S. Several things to debunk the levee argument: 1. The Army Corp of Engineers said that regardless of cuts the levees would not have been constructed to sufficient strength for years to come. 2. The levees were never a priority of the Democrat leadership of the local or state officials who were in charge of such. 3. Congress cut the levee budget. 4. There has been more federal funds spent on the levees under Bush than there were in Clinton's entire 8 years.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
