Former FEMA Chief Witt Details Disaster Recovery Task

James Lee Witt, former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, played a quiet role in the investigation of the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800 off Long Island. Now FEMA has a similar task as it supervises recovery of debris from space shuttle Columbia. Witt talks with NPR's Scott Simon.
