US House committee subpoenaed Pentagon documents on Katrina
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On December 14, 2005, the Hurricane Katrina Committee of the US House of Representatives, which investigated the government's actions in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, issued a subpoena commanding Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to turn over internal records on the Pentagon's efforts to stabilize public safety, mobilize active duty forces in the region and send supplies to victims. The subpoena was issued following the administration's failure to turn over internal memos, e-mails and documents and ordered the Department of Defense to deliver the requested materials by December 30.
