Katrina: Bush says federal response ‘not acceptable’

"The White House on Thursday made available top [Amry Corps of Engineers] officials to assure reporters that cuts to the agency’s budget did not cause the Katrina disaster. Even though the administration has chronically cut back on the Corps’ own requests for funding — including two key New Orleans-area projects — White House officials trumpeted the administration’s support for the Corps.
‘Flood control has been a priority of this administration from Day One,’ McClellan said."

Bolding mine.
