Former Secretary Of State Condoleezza Rice said that she “should have known better” than to leave Washington D.C. during Hurricane Katrina in her new memoir, “No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington.”

Rice admitted that she was on vacation and shopping for shoes when the news of Hurricane Katrina came.

The Grio reports:

“I should have known better than to leave for New York with that Hurricane approaching for the south for New Orleans,” she said. “Yes, I was Secretary of State. That was very much on my mind. I was one of the president’s closest advisors and the highest ranking African-American. I really do feel I let him down in the first days of Katrina.”
