Andrew Samwick has a brief post, expanding on Eisenhower's famous warning from the 1950's to beware the military-industrial complex, and concluding...

Today, the buzzwords are homeland security rather than military, but the admonition should remain the same. As we have watched the problems unfold in the Gulf Coast this month, we have seen a large element of this bureaucracy failing in critical ways to do what it was intended to do. The usual response in Washington will be to make that bureaucracy larger, without necessarily making it smarter.

P.S. It may shock some readers that I follow the blog of a conservative economist, but yeah... I do read it regularly, and I recommend it. You won't find dogmatic conservative ideology and spin there. You will find concise analysis of facts, mostly tending to support a more traditional conservative philosophy than what you'll get from the politicians or the talking heads.
