BATON ROUGE, La. -- Gov. Kathleen Blanco asked President Bush on Wednesday to appoint an independent commission to investigate the preparations for and response to Hurricane Katrina -- adding her voice to a chorus of Democrats calling for an independent investigation.

Blanco sent a letter to Bush with the request, pointing to the independent commission set up to investigate the Sept. 11 attacks.

"Only an independent, nonpartisan commission investigation that commands full support from the executive and legislative branches will accomplish what we need -- a thorough, comprehensive review which is only concerned with getting to the truth," she wrote in the letter released by the governor's office.

Bush has named Frances Fragos Townsend, his in-house homeland security adviser, to lead an administration investigation into the sluggish federal response to Katrina. The appointment of Townsend, a former federal prosecutor, hasn't satisfied Democrats on Capitol Hill who are demanding a fully independent investigation.
