Skip to comments.Anderson Cooper stupifies Eddie Compass
Posted on 09/09/2005 8:35:58 PM PDT by Armedanddangerous
Did anyone just see the exchange between Anderson Cooper and Eddie Compass? He tried to pin the chief down on the evacuation issue and the chief about blew a circuit breaker.
About that time you couuld see fast Eddie get confused because a reporter strayed from the DNC talking points and blurted out, "We asked for more buses, we BEGGED for more buses." Then he added, the buses in New Orleans were surrounded by water and we couldn't get to them!"
It went down hill after that.
How were the school buses under water before the hurricane came? Hmmmmm?
Please ping me if you get the transcript!
Thanks! and Thanks for the post!
I couldn't believe what I saw. From Anderson cooper of all people.I laughed so hard when Coooper said he wanted to understand so he could ask the Governor. Eddie looked like a Deer in the headlights.
Did Anderson ask this question? Eddie Compass is a liar and a shill for the Dems.
I have never watched Anderson Cooper. Is he any good?
They say he is supposed to unseat the FoxNews ratings.
No, Cooper didn't ask it. This is going to come back to haunt Eddie and I think he realized it. Cooper rerun would be worth rewatching just for the Eddie interview.
As the African American woman said on Rush today,
You bet those buses were in use on election day.
Is Eddie the one that was on with Geraldo that night that Geraldo freaked out with the baby? There was a black official that was saying they were on the verge of a riot and Geraldo was being the typical Drama Queen.
Compass police buddy who was said to have committed suicide, this needs to be looked into.
"We asked for more buses, we BEGGED for more buses."
I saw them beg. It was for the Superdome evacuation, not pre-hurricane evacation.
Cooper should ask the state evacuation planners about the plans faults. Police Chief does not design them, does not operate them. Operates under them.
As for the begging - that was to the state. What's their response?
Operation Save Blanco full steam ahead.
Ted Koppel got into it with him last night....Eddie Compass leaned toward him threatening and raised his voice.
The guy is a thug, just like Mayor Hyroglyphics and the rest...
They are forcibly removing their own citizens, yet ordered the Houston Police to take no action against all those NOPD cruisers still driving around their city.
2 many buts!
Anderson Cooper is an overemotional communist.
He is no good. He is usually on the DNC talking points .
"Notice how often the Democrat Party sells out the loyal African-American."
You smart hombre.
Two things at work. One, over the past two or three days MSM has been broaching the topic of "local" mistakes. The Dem money elite talking points counter attacked by pointing to the mayor. He will lose. He doesn't have the PR resources, Dems will abandon him.
Two, future money. If "Hugs" Blanco looks unclean, fed money into state coffers will be harder to gain.
Tancredo's right. No state or local officials should hold the pursestrings to fed reconstruction money. Nagin is reputedly honest, but certainly other local pols aren't.
This whole thing is going to implode on the 'crats.
In this case, I think Cooper has seen enough that he seems to be willing to go after the people who failed in this disaster - including the Dems.
Aaron Brown just made a snide comment and said BELIEVE ME HE IS NO RELATION..when talking about FEMA director. Really can't stand Aaaron Brown.
before CNN, he is a gameshow host who was awarded an "accurate" journalism award by a militant homosexual group.
Cooper actually thought outside of the script and pointed out that the buses were under water? That is unbelievable!
(Was someone prompting him from off the set?)
Anderson Cooper earlier was screaming about his 1st Amendment rights to show dead bodies. I sent him an email asking if I can hire someone to take pictures of him and his lover(s) at his next bathhouse circle party. I have yet to get a reply.
I was driving Sunday night and Drudge slammed Cooper by refering to his "Gloria Vanderbilt jeans". nuff said.
A freeper emailed the school district...and they responded. They said the drivers were told to evacuate like everyone else....and they left well ahead of Sunday.
Stone Phillips just spent the hour complaining about FEMA except for one line about the school buses. But "independent experts" say the lack of evacuation didn't matter because it was FEMA's fault.
FEMA took my diesel fuel, FEMA took my radio antenna, FEMA sent the medics all over the country, FEMA didn't have enough stuff stockpiled. If there were only 5,000 people left after evacuation rather than 100,000 then there would have been enough food, water and helicopter trips for everyone.
Anderson Cooper is Gloria Vanderbilt's son.
and he is a gay man and a gay journalist.
He showed dead bodies tonight. They were doing a piece on the convention center with a doctor. Whoever was doing to the reporting..don't remember who it was...said many bodies looked mutilated.
you forgot idiot...he is absolutely an idiot.
Thanks I did not know either of those things.
Do you live under a bridge?
I knew that! :)
Yeah, he is the nut who said they had been there without food and water for 6 days. That was Friday, people started showing up at the Convention Center Tuesday (3 Days) and Steve Harrigan showed them being fed by the National Guard on Thursday.
Disciplining fellow cops may be Compass' toughest task. "I think Chief Compass is one of the best members of the police force in terms of someone who has empathy for the average police officer," says former U.S. Attorney Eddie Jordan. "His challenge will be to put those relationships on the side and to make tough decisions that will not be popular with rank and file."
NOPD Links To Nation Of Islam Are Disturbing
Author: Jeff Crouere | 6/14/2005
The security chief for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been hired to provide sensitivity training for the NOPD. Captain Dennis Muhammad has conducted sensitivity training in other cities such as Buffalo and will be paid $15,000 for his services, which NOPD Chief Eddie Compass says are needed in New Orleans. Compass says there are people in New Orleans who have complained about police treatment and are anti police. Compass believes that the members of the Nation of Islam have some type of relationship with these people.
However, what about those in the community and on the NOPD who are not members of the Nation of Islam? David Benelli of the Police Association of New Orleans says his phone has been ringing off the hook with members upset about the hiring of someone with ties to the Nation of Islam. The NOPD is 45% white, while the city is about 30% non-black, so there is a large number of people who might feel insulted by this decision. However, not only should whites be outraged about the selection of this Nation of Islam leader to conduct sensitivity training, but also all African-Americans in the community who are of the Catholic or Jewish faiths.
At the press conference announcing the training, a rabbi and priest expressed concern about Muhammads selection. Such concern is more than justified considering the history of Muhammads boss, Louis Farrakhan. Here are just a few of the Nation of Islams beliefs, as well as some of Farrakhans disturbing statements:
* Whites are blue eyed devils.
* Jews are bloodsuckers
* Hitler was a very great man.
* Jews controlled the slave trade and currently control the government
* Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad believed that whites were created by an evil Black scientist and that there will be The Great Decisive Battle in the Sky when a space ship will kill all white people by bombing the earth
* Muhammad believed that white people should relocate to Europe and that racial integration was wrong
In addition, Farrakhan has met with dictators in Sudan, Libya and Iraq, before the war, and praised their governments while denouncing the United States. Leaders in the Nation of Islam have also made very inflammatory anti-Catholic statements. In a November 1993 speech at Kean College in New Jersey, Farrakhans chief spokesman Khallid Muhammad said, T]he old no-good Pope-you know that cracker, somebody need to raise that dress up and see what´s really under there. Jesus was right; you´re nothing but liars. The book of Revelations is right; you´re from the Synagogue of Satan.
Unfortunately, the list of racist and inflammatory statements from Nation of Islam leaders is too comprehensive to completely catalog. Needless to say, it is vast. With such a controversial and confrontational history, why would Chief Compass hire any representative from the Nation of Islam?
Farrakhans views have even been condemned by African American leaders such as Rev. Jesse Jackson and former Congressman Cynthia McKinney (D-Georgia). Even pop star Michael Jackson fired the members of the Nation of Islam who were part of his security detail.
If the Nation of Islam ties were too controversial for Michael Jackson, it should be too controversial for the NOPD. New Orleans is a very diverse community with strong ties to the Jewish and Catholic faiths. Hiring an individual who is affiliated with such a hate filled group that has a history of anti-White, anti-Catholic and anti-Semitic rhetoric is an insult to all such individuals on the police force and in New Orleans. Obviously, Chief Compass needs sensitivity training to realize the implications of his decision.
Would that make him a Gay anti-American? :0)
Excellent!! thanks for the laugh.
Was Cooper crying or whimpering?
I'll never believed he strayed from the DNC talking points.
Do they rerun Aaron Brown? I would love to see that Eddie interview again. I was laughing so hard I missed the exact dialogue.
I did not know that.../Johnny Carson voice
Why are you being so hard on Anderson Cooper? He sounds like he's actually doing some journalism. He's asking someone a valid question. Would you rather have the New York Times' opinions?
LOL! Who is 'They'?
That's like one of the men in Houston today, said he had been waiting 9 months for his debit card from fema.
Don't do it. You'll be sorry.
I love it when you show up Howlin! :)
I only saw a single clip of that dude, one where he was with that Col. whatever dude, the NO City Homeland Security chief. They blew a big opportunity to spur on the evacuation before the storm hit. All they would have had to do is to show those two clowns on TV and say "if you stay, these are the people who will be in charge and on whom your life will depend." The exodus would have been epic.
Did anyone see Tancreado on Tucker Carlsons show? Tancreado has a lot to say and most of it is not politically corrrect. He has some good insight. I will look for more from this guy. He came out and said this is mostly Blancos fault with some stupid things from the may and some improvements could be made with FEMA (10% blame).
