Who do blame Katrina, Katrina's destruction, & response on

As Hurrican Katrina's death toll and destruction assessment comes in, murmurs of who to blame are quietly being blogged: MISSISSIPPI GOV. BARBOUR PARTIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR HURRICANE'S SEVERITY According to a Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. article(1) on The Huffington Post :
"Governor Haley Barbour played in derailing the Kyoto Protocol and kiboshing President Bush’s iron-clad campaign promise to regulate CO2" (1)
in 2001, as a oil industry lobbyist and former RNC chair and member of the Bush campaign. CO2 has been linked to global warming which is linked to increased hurricanes. HURRICANE WAS GOD'S JUDGEMENT AGAINST NEW ORLEANS FOR WELCOMING GAYS and noted that a fringe, anti-gay Christian organization linked the hurricane to God's judgement against gays. According to today's press release(2) from the anti-gay, fringe Christian organization Repent America:
"'Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city,' stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. 'From "Girls Gone Wild" to "Southern Decadence", New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. May it never be the same,' he continued." (2)
Southern Decadence is an annual gay festival that was scheduled for Labor Day weekend. IRAQ WAR RESOURCES COULD HAVE BEEN USED ON KATRINA (blogged allegations I'll look up later: * US Army Corps, which maintains New Orleans' levy system, hampered by poor communications. Why does the Corps rely on civilian communication system? * US infastructure, such as New Orleans' levy system, could have been better prepared had resources not been spent Iraq. * National Guard personnel could be used in rescue efforts are in Iraq.)
