Head whitewasher?

Bush Aide Will Lead Hurricane Inquiry

Ms. Frances Fragos Townsend
Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism

Mr. McClellan said the White House had instructed each cabinet secretary to designate a senior official to work with Ms. Townsend. He said she would convene a meeting of the cabinet secretaries within a few days to discuss the inquiry.

Her White House bio suggests that she is not a partisan hack. But spokesweasel McClellan's statement above does not inspire confidence. Senior officials designated by each cabinet secretary...I'm sure each of them will have the utmost desire to answer to the American people. The administration has earned the benefit of the doubt after all, what with the lying about WMD's, the Downing Street Memo, etc., etc.
