Don't Know Much About Katrina

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on October 18, 2009

The next time President Obama feels like visiting New Orleans to discuss the effects of Hurricane Katrina, he may want to work harder to ensure that he has the facts right concerning the hurricane and its aftermath. Otherwise, he will only cause the residents of New Orleans, and Louisiana in general, to think that he doesn’t care enough about their problems to know what he is talking about when speaking about the government’s post-Katrina policies.

    Hey, thanks. We have begun to call that “Katrina Shorthand”, to wit: what Obama did here and what the Media does as well in Miiss-Framing a Man Made Disaster (fixable) as a Natural Disaster (inevitable).
    Obama's denial of the Cause of the Flooding of New Orleans matters as much to the rest of the country as us because over Half live in counties with Corps levees. Yep, we're all in this leaky boat together, it isn't just about his attempting to Cover up the engineering failures of the Corps of Engineers New Orleans District. Many people don't seem to know that our floodwalls failed in 56 locations. That isn't ignorance, but Corps PR. Real Public Relations by Real firms hired by the Corps.
    Obama basically lied for the Corps in New Orleans Oct 15th. He never even said the Word engineering. It was all Katrina and amorphous “Breakdown of Government” –translate: Bush did it.
    His Tact Scares Me To Death, as it signals that he is in on the Corps' game and not simply ignorant of the facts. These are facts Obama is getting wrong, established Legal Facts.
    For example:
    He has had on his desk since FREAKING JUNE the Office of Special Counsel Report on the Inoperable Pumps the Corps installed in our outfall canals.

    This is a NOW Problem, directly driven from the Corps' failures on 8/29/05.
    Obama has not taken Command of that situation down here. The Corps is rolling right along.

    Y'all might come over to the Ladder and check out our take on this, just fang back down the posts.

    Thanks again youz,
