Closer Scrutiny Reveals the Lies Surrounding Katrina Evacuation and Recovery - CORRECTED
Enter Stage Right ^ | September 5, 2005 | LPR

Posted on 09/05/2005 7:24:35 PM PDT by WriterInTX

Having lived on Long Island for most of my life, I weathered only the most minor effects of hurricanes. Typically, their devastating strength drained along the coastline as they churned northwards. When I was a child, my father comforted me through Hurricane Belle; not by holding me and telling me everything would be alright, but by his activity in securing our house, his purchase of supplies and preparations, and his explanations of hurricanes and their threats.

While the storm whipped overhead, my piqued curiosity prompted me to ask about all different kinds of natural disasters. We passed the time discussing typhoons, tornadoes, earthquakes, and floods. I never thought I would use this information, but I did; twice.

At 19, my passenger and I found ourselves caught in the only flash flood in the history of Long Island. What started as a heavy rain became an overwhelming downpour within minutes. Not unlike the City of New Orleans, the patch of road on which I traveled was nestled in a natural funnel. In the space of minutes, we experienced more rain in that small bit of road alongside Eisenhower Park than all of Long Island had received in a year. With traffic surrounding me, I had not choice but to inch forward to the overpass that would take me to higher ground. Just moments before my car cleared the water now pouring in under my doors, the engine stalled, and my Monte Carlo sank back down the embankment, eventually to be completely submerged.

We had to wait until the water rose inside the car and the pressure stabilized before we could get out.

The gas pumps at the corner station began bubbling up, turning the water so black you couldn’t see your hand just two inches under the surface. An elderly man, trapped in his car, didn’t want to leave. Plodding through chest deep water, my passenger and I managed to get his door open and help him slog back to safety.

Everyone caught in that mess experienced a loss, but it is nothing compared to Katrina.

The second time I used my father’s sage advice came when I moved to Texas. In the bottom tip of the tornado belt, I knew what to do when the sky turned an ominous shade of green, the clouds started rotating above my head, and where to seek shelter to maximize my potential for living. It was in those few moments, when the doors and windows rattled and I imagined that my new house would be reduced to kindling around me, that all my priorities changed…forever.

The folks in Louisiana and Mississippi experienced wide scale devastation during Katrina. New Orleans, and other parts of the coast, experienced a second, even more devastating blow from the horrible flooding. One is bad enough, but both? It’s a catastrophe beyond comprehension, and our fellow Americans need our compassion, our generosity, and our understanding as they rebuild their entire lives.

We should be coming together, as we did after other catastrophic events in the last decade, to help and heal.

Sadly, that is not the case.

What I find astonishing is the almost immediate response from Bush Bashers to blame everything that happened, from the actual hurricane itself, to the anarchy that quickly erupted, on the President and his administration. When they do so, they not only distort the truth, they outright lie to the public, and they are doing so daily through any media venue that will give them the opportunity.

Lie #1: President Bush doesn’t care about the people of New Orleans.

This outrageous lie is thoroughly debunked by the fact that it was President Bush who pushed for a mandatory evacuation of New Orleans.(1) Governor Blanco issued only a voluntary evacuation order, but admitted that she received a call from the President on August 27, 2005, urging her to make it a mandatory one. He wanted as many people as possible out of the path of the storm.

So much for the President not caring.

Despite the fact that New Orlean’s own Emergency Response Guidelines call for a mandatory evacuation of the City if a strike by a Category 3 Hurricane is projected, with 72 hours advance notice to all residents, Mayor Nagin didn’t order a mandatory evacuation until Sunday. Further, he only did so after Max Maxfield, the National Hurricane Director, called Nagin at his home to plead that he empty the City. (2)

Why did Nagin wait so long? He was worried about the legalities. If people want to affix blame, perhaps they can look at lawyers.

How ironic, that The Drudge Report (3) and Free Republic (4) have pictures of dozens of New Orleans’ submerged and now useless school buses, buses that could have been used to transport residents out of the City prior to the storm, bring in supplies after the storm, and help evacuees escape the flooding. Meanwhile, Governor Blanco issued a request to the State of Louisiana to provide her with buses from local school districts.

According to a Washington Post report on Sunday, September 4, “Shortly before midnight Friday, the Bush administration sent her a proposed legal memorandum asking her to request a federal takeover of the evacuation of New Orleans, a source within the state's emergency operations center said Saturday.”

Bush’s offer to have the federal government takeover the evacuation was rejected. (5)

Lie #2: The Bush Administration was slow in coordinating help.

Mike Brown, Under Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security for Emergency Response and Preparedness, received the order from President Bush on August 27, two full days before the storm hit the region, to prepare for Katrina disaster relief. (6) The President also declared the entire region under a State of Emergency, so that FEMA could coordinate efforts at the request of the Governors. (7) Under the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, the Federal Government and FEMA are not allowed to interfere with local operations unless they are authorized by state and local leaders.

Blanco did not authorize this until September 1, 2005.

Further, according to an Association Press report on August 30, “The federal government began rushing baby formula, communications equipment, generators, water and ice into hard-hit areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, along with doctors, nurses and first-aid supplies. The U.S. Defense Department sent experts to help with search-and-rescue operations.” (8) FEMA was there and helping, in the capacity that was allowed by local officials, but could not swing into full gear until after Blanco gave them permission.

Lie #3: The Bush Administration did nothing to control the anarchy.

The local and state governments have control over law enforcement activities in their state, and such activities could only be coordinated through the federal government with their permission. It was not until terrible reports of rapes and violence, videos of looting, and reports of shoots being fired at rescue workers did Governor Blanco relinquish any claim of control on an out-of-control city.

An August 31, 2005 Fox News Report reveals, “The looting prompted authorities to send more than 70 additional officers and an armed personnel carrier into the city. One police officer was shot in the head by a looter but was expected to recover, authorities said. Blanco said she will ask President Bush for military troops to help keep looting under control.” (9) Almost immediately thereafter, FEMA, the military, and the Bush Administration began to restore order.

Further, on September 2, 2005, the Bush administration “sought unified control over all local police and state National Guard units reporting to the governor. Louisiana officials rejected the request after talks throughout the night, concerned that such a move would be comparable to a federal declaration of martial law.” (10)

Lie #4: The Bush Administration did nothing to prevent the flooding.

Predictions of wide spread devastation have been known since Hurricane Camille in 1969. Despite these, it was local officials who reportedly appropriated funds designated for levee improvements towards such necessary purchases as a casino, hotel, and other projects.

Amazing, isn’t it?

From the carnage inside the Superdome, to the massacre of the truth on television, this is a sad time for all of America.

Just don’t forget who helped all this to happen….because despite what the media wants you to believe, it wasn’t President Bush.

Dear Fellow Freepers:

Although my "born on" date indicates a new arrival to FR, I have actually been on the board since 1998. Two new computers, two changes in service providers, and a recent trojan horse forced me to change my login. You may know me as "TheWriterInTx," or "TheWriterTX" or simply, "TheWriter."

Health issues and a complicated pregnancy prompted to stop writing for almost the entire last year, but the mud slinging around Hurricane Katrina brought me to my breaking point. During the wee hours of Sunday morning, I hammered out the original of this piece and did something I almost never do...sent it right away without looking it over. After many years of writing solid articles for many internet magazines, most editors don't give my stuff a second look before posting.

Egg, major egg.

Many thanks to Cbolt and others for pointing out a serious error in the original article. I don't mind the egg on my face, saying I was wrong, and correcting it. Unlike the MSM, I actually do want the facts out there. The corrected version should also hit Enter Stage Right shortly.

Thanks, FReepers, for keeping me on my toes.

Welcome back and hope all is well. This is off your post a bit but I just saw Jeb Bush being interviewed by Brent Musberger during the football game and he said something very telling:

He said Florida was very prepared for the next hurricane and so they were able to send resources to New Orleans to help out.

It's obvious that Louisana was not prepared to help themselves, let alone help anyone else.

The Southern Louisiana Evacuation Plan specifically stated that people without private transportation were to be transported on public buses.

There were not just "200 buses". There were 200 buses in just one photo and Freepers studying the post-Katrina satellite images have counted over 400 buses altogether at other city parking.

At 70 people per bus that is 28,000 people per round trip that could have been taken out of the storm surge area in the 48 hours prior the Katrina striking.

After the storm hit, what makes you think that buses sent from outside of New Orleans could drive through the flooded mess any better than the 145 New Orleans city buses that were parked 1.2 miles away from the Superdome?

Was Scotty supposed to beam the outside buses to the Superdome and them beam them back out so that they would not have to drive through impassable roads?

The time to evacuate those 200,000 low-income people on public buses OUT OF THE STORM SURGE ZONE was BEFORE the Category 4 storm struck.

That was what the Southern Louisiana Evacuation Plan for New Orleans specifically called for.

The Democrat Governor and the Democrat Mayor did NOTHING to carry out that portion of the plan. They left 200,000 low-income resident abandoned and they now blame the Federal Government for not having Scotty beam down a massive logistics effort after a human disaster of their own making.

Post Script: I write weekly for ChronWatch.com in San Francisco. But before I send my text to the editor there, I post the articles as "Special to FreeRepublic." With maybe "a thousand eyes" looking at things here, maybe six serious errors of mine in the last year were warned off by Freepers before published officially.

Freepers are good people, funny people, and smart people. (I don't know about cute and sexy. That's hard to tell on the Net. LOL.)

Can you imagine what the situation would be if Katrina had made a direct strike on NOLA, including the levee breaches? Considering the current estimated projected death toll of 10,000, can you imagine the deaths if Katrina had done to NOLA what she did to MS ?

I was keeping track of the news, and weather reports days before hurricane Katrina hit.
On Aug 28, I went to a web sight

( http://www.wdsu.com/wxcam/1475332/detail.html )

were you can look at the live web cam of the New Orleans Causeway.
I saved a few pictures on that Sunday evening before the hurricane hit and it clearly shows the traffic coming out of New Orleans of those who had vehicles to get out, but, only the out bound lanes had traffic going out of the city, and the in bound lanes did not have any traffic at all except one vehicle.

The city had 500 school buses they could have used, and used the in bound lanes to evacuate those people on those buses, but, they ( the mayor, and the Gov ) didn't DO NOTHING.

I have those pictures saved on my computer, but, I tried to post them here in Freerepulic, but, I can't get them to post because the pictures don't have the URL addresses on them.

It is fairly obvious the Dem machine jumped in once they had public opinion turned against the White House - you don't suppose Blanco's actions were studied and intentional BEFORE the levee break, do you?

For the life of me, I just cannot understand why every single "official" in the state of Louisiana came out of the shute blaming Bush, practically before any of the really bad news came out.

Unless they knew that the really bad stuff was coming earlir than that admitted that and didn't tell people in time.

Whatever it is, they are really hiding something. Something big, IMO, is all that would explain the vitrol from people who have been through hurricanes before and know how long aid takes.

Big.

Dear TX:

Right now, Justin's official due date is December 11; however, they are scheduling to take him on November 18 due to my existing risk of premature abruption and his two-vessel umbillical cord. If left unchecked, he has a 25% chance of being stillborn.

They are monitoring me for toxemia now, and may have to take him sooner; believe me, I will let folks know. Many thanks for the prayers. We can sure use them!
