Government 'failed' the people

Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush have launched the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund "to help raise money for those left homeless by the storm."

At the same time, the two are still critics of the federal government's poor response time.

"We've got the departments on the ground, we've got the military on the ground, we've got a chance to do it right now, and we should do it right," (Clinton) said. "And then in an appropriate time we should analyze what went wrong and why and what changes should be made."

"The elder Bush echoed Clinton's sentiment, telling CNN's Larry King that he is 'not satisfied' with the handling of the hurricane's aftermath."
