Four years after September 11, 2001 and we still don't have one of these?

I was reading some headlines on the Houston Chronicle Hurricane Rita website and was pretty shocked to see this:

Military officials told President Bush today that the U.S. needs a national plan to coordinate search and rescue efforts following natural disasters or terrorist attacks.

Seriously? I mean it has been four years and fourteen days since the World Trade Center was destroyed and no one has created a national plan to coordinate search and rescue? I am all for states rights and minimal federal government, but large scale disasters and terrorists attacks will need a better management strategy than presently exists. Things like this and this shouldn't happen during an emergency.
