New Orleans Mayor Suggests CIA May Take Him Out Over His Criticism of Federal Efforts (CNN)
CNN TV ^ | 3 August 2005 | AmericanInTokyo

Posted on 09/03/2005 2:59:43 PM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

On CNN just now. New Orleans Mayor Nagin, apparantly stressed out, in interview segment, said he has been yelling at the President and the Governor, and for all he knows, the "CIA could wipe me out". (Paraphrase) Just now.

Turning into a strange, macabre show now. Blame continues, spiraling out of control. Sad. It even raised CNN's eyebrows a bit.(5:57 p.m. Eastern/4:57 p.m. Central)

Wish I'd seen it. Wonder if he's had threats over his inaction?

Excuse me Mr. Mayor. I think you need to worry about your citizens taking you out. Especially if they see this picture!

From the DRUDGE REPORT

"WHY DIDN'T YOU DEPLOY THE BUSES DURING THE MANDATORY EVACUATION, MAYOR?..."

it appears the mayor is in the middle of a big time jones..he's in way over his head, never imagining he'd have to deal with a disaster of epic proportions..

He'll show up dead tomorrow, and everyone will wonder.

But the truth is that if he does, it won't be the CIA. There must be a million people who want to kill him.

The quote was very close to "wipe me out."

CNN transcript will show the exact quote.

My approximation is close enough.

The man looked like he has had it. I can understand the fatigue. However, regardless, those are not words you want to say on national TV during a serious crisis. One must be a leader under pressure. Imagine the pressure President Bush was under or Rudy Giuliani. Where is this man heading. I think he is staring dangerously into the abyss. Somebody needs a 'time out'. Can we have the adults take over??

I thought it was "sarcasm under strain."

He's said some things that don't get play because they don't help partisan arguments. After meeting Bush and Blanco he stressed he told them they have to get the "chain of command" settled. Last Wednesday he was interviewed, talked about trying to get helos for the growing levee breeches, but they were dedicated to rescue.

Nagin and Blanco have both certainly lost control of both themselves and the situation. For the sake of their communities, they should both resign immediately.

Nagin doesn't even know about the Bilderberger/Illuminati fatwah put out on him...

Also, his neighbor wants him to join Herbalife.




CIA is the least of his worries.

OMG, Sorry Mayor Nagin, We're(assorted imagined Boogey men) just not that into you...Mmmm'kay? (rolls eyes)

Sounds like a little guilt might be working in him. Those who make the most noise, projecting blame on everyone else, are usually the ones most culpable. In this case, Nagin is responsible for 100s or 1000s of deaths of his own constituents. How in hell can he sleep at night?

This morning FOX interviewed a black family rescued and in the Astrodome. Throughout the interview the mom held a sign that condemned Nagin. I had the sound off and was curious about her sign. By the time I got the sound on she was ranting and raving about how awful Nagin is. Never could read the sign but it was not complementary.

I think Mayor Nagin is using German Chancellor Shroeder's game plan. Bash Bush and the media and the people will love you. This time though, I think the people are on to him.

This guy has no business being in power at any level.

NO has been decimated, the people of this city have been put through he!!, and his leadership capabilities are shown to make comment of his delusional mindset showing concern for his own skin?

Lowlife......

That makes three Katrina-related meltdowns on TV: Shepard Smith, a CNN reporter (Anderson Cooper?), and now Mr. Mayor.

I expect my incredulity index to be adjusted as the heat rises for the mayor, and possibly the governor.

I think Nagin needs security to watch over him for his own good. Take away any sharp objects from him, belts, neck ties, pills... you catch my drift.

I remember the first big crisis in my engineering career. I stayed up for three days and finally somebody more senior told me to go get some sleep "or else."

The mayor is getting bleary - now sometimes that makes you say things you don' mean but sometimes you say what is really on your mind.

I don't always do so, but try to adhere to the 'walk a mile in one's moccasins before criticism' rule.

Still, this is serious business--what the mayor said, tired or joking or not--and if the man cannot keep a head on his shoulders at this time, or is just going to blame his way out of this problem, he really needs to step aside, seriously. For his mental health and the health and safety of the residents he has been given entrusted charge over. What's the law of succession in New Orleans?
