Feds: Nagin's Ambitious Return Plan is Problematic

Coast Guard Vice Admiral Thad Allen said federal officials have worked with Mayor Ray Nagin and support his vision for repopulating the city, but he called Nagin's idea to allow citizens to return and businesses reopen in the next week both "extremely ambitious" and "extremely problematic."
The Associated Press article states that fears of another storm hitting the region's weakened levee system could put returned evacuees in danger.
