Get to it, CNN! Start identifying bodies so you can then go and ask permission. Come on, CNN, we're waiting! Certainly a crew of vultures and vampires like you have forensic patholigists on staff and on call for just such a situation! Get to identifying! Go! Go!
Now it's correct. They don't want us to hate the government, they want more government, but under Hillary Rhodam, John Kerrey or others of their ilk.
I was watching Dateline last night and when Nagin was asked if he would do anything different he said; YEA! I WOULD HAVE SCREAMED LOUDER.
What a jerk.
"If it rots, make sure to take shots"
Actually I wonder if there ARE any real vultures in N.O., or do they know better.
Keep this comment in mind when the MoveOn.org commercials superimposing images of bloated corpses over images of President Bush start hitting the airwaves in a week or so.
Dick Cheney and Governor Kathleen Blanco talk with members of the US Army Corp of Engineers during a tour of the 17th street levee repair operations in New Orleans, Louisiana Thursday, September 8, 2005
If there's decay, we're on the way.
And what does CNN do??
Takes them to court to get the pictures
CNN repetitively reports on the body Count
Go ahead CNN .. I dare you to air those pictures
Because you will have a backlash from the American public like you've never seen before
Hey CNN .. could ya go any lower??
They'll find lots and lots of photos of just how much the residents of those cities share the view of "The Second Greatest Commandment - Love Your Neighbor As Yourself."
"They santized the airwaves of 9/11 pics just days after the event. Wonder why they are so gung-ho to publicize the corpses of this disaster?"
Very simple, very easy. The corpses in 9/11 were in the vast majority, White people. The corpses in New Orleans will be in the vast majority, Black people.
Vice-President Dick Cheney walks along a plank to get across water while touring devastated homes in Gulfport, Miss., on Thurday, Sept. 8, 2005
In the same vein, I saw Chertoff slap down a reporter the other day when the boob pressed him about the FEMA director's reassignment. His response was basically "I just got done explaining that as clearly as I could in English. I'm not going to do it again." Then he went on to the next question.
What I'm saying is that these men should be free to do what they do best. Gen. Honore's best work is NOT on the podium, but in the trenches.
I think she and Governor Gregoire of Washington State are twins.
That pic shows just about the size of it. cnn/cooper ****!
Give 'em H*!!, Honore!
I stand corrected. :-)
Wonder if there is any law saying the military has to take the press with them.

General Honore is another shining example of the people who make America great.
Shoot the reporters.
As a Brit I agree
So they can use them in the next campaign and the midterms.
Make up mind in advance, after checking with management as who is to blame in accordance with management's political agenda.
Come in after the fact.
Don't write from reports. Photograph and tape.
Focus on dead bodies.Ignore atrocities which do not fit bias. doesn't matter who or what killed them. They are dead and it's somebody's fault. And that someone cannot be an African American, a woman, or even a Democrat.
Close-Up on reporter, who becomes star of event.
Focus on blame
Create 20-second vignettes instead of in-depth reports
I forgot to include a "/sarc" tag on my post. There has been so much posted about so-called "martial law" and so many conflicting news reports about the actual "legal" status under which "the Authorities" are operating that the concept of "rule of law" is pretty much a joke.
If anyone has noticed, "the Authorities", at all levels, have managed to sufficiently obfuscate, diffuse and disguise any semblance of a clear chain of command and responsibility. The has the tremendous benefit of allowing them maxiumum power and freedom of action with minimal, almost non-existant accountability.
The hypocrisy of demanding the "Constitutional right" to show the bodies of the dead, while simultaneously refusing to stand up for the Constitutional rights of the living who survived speaks for itself.
If surviving. law-abiding property owners can be summarily denied their Constitutional right to defend their lives and property because of "the Emergency", then the media can certainly be denied access to broadcast the pictures of the dead to satisfy the ghoulish lusts of a decadent populace.
You can't have it both ways, at least not morally, logically or lawfully.
Here is a reference of the write-up on the 1900 Storm and how persons were treated who showed disrespect to the dead.
This has a quote from an article published in the Dallas News on September 14, 1900.
This was a time before being P.C. was popular. When it better to BE CORRECT -- than it was to be POLITICALLY CORRECT! 'nuf said
Sad to say but I do believe those "corpses" will be voting Democratic next time.
Happens all the time.
I think this thread should stay. Maybe a new thread with the link to the 11:05 news.
CNN immediately file a restraining order to circumvent Honore, depend on some MSM suck up judge going for it. Honore might have to order a few extra body bags for the modern day Kodiak fiends such as the militia shot out of hand in aftermath of the 1900 Galveston hurricane.
Would be neat to see the MSM filing missing person reports for Pooper Cooper, Stretch, and several others. I suggest that Chrissy get down to NO ASAP and get in on the MSM Cadaver Report.
Your photo tells me Brown should have been given a blindfold for this press conference.
"Gen. Honore isn't the most articulate guy in the world. At times, he seemed like a dullard, more in tune with the voices in his head than with the questions being directed at him.
None of which means he isn't a great field commander. It's just that some guys aren't made for the spotlight."
Yeah, (sarc)not everyone can be a Jack of all trades like yourself(armchair blow hard). At least America realizes that the General Honores of America are masters(highly skilled) in their occupation. Some people like General Honore are able to move mountains(troops) far better with verbal metaphors.
"Attorneys for the network argued that the ban was an unconstitutional prior restraint on news gathering."
translation: lawyers argued that it is unconstitutional to bar the media jackals from hell their feeding frenzy of the deceased.
quick verbal synapse is not a great indicator of intelligence or wisdom
On the contrary, I think Americans appreciated the strong rebuke to the press for their propaganda.
In New Orleans, he is the man and exactly what is needed. He is not afraid to say it like it is and like it will be.
"Sometimes the press needs a kick in the head to show them that they aren't above the law."
.... and the media jackals aren't in charge of relief and relocation. They "think" they are but they are not.
"I am so sick of the media. They DIDN'T want any pictures taken or shown of the 100's of people who jumped out of the World Trade Center, but they sure want pictures of all the dead and bloated drowning victims."
It's the secular liberal media's form of political manipulation, edited and re-edited to sway the masses. Period.
During the Viet Nam war,
the media showed dead
soldiers, on the battlefields,
up close and personal every night.
General Honore appears to be an old fashion type of warrior, ghoulish CNN Kodiak fiends should take note:
"Word received from Galveston today indicates that Kodak fiends are being shot down like thieves. Two, it is stated, were killed yesterday while taking pictures of nude female bodies." (Dallas News, September 14, 1900.)"
"I was watching Dateline last night and when Nagin was asked if he would do anything different he said; YEA! I WOULD HAVE SCREAMED LOUDER."
Yep, every day is Mardi Gras for Nagin as he throws beads and Blanco as she throws cake.
Poor decision unless we want to hear arguments over the true death count for the next hundred years.
None of which means he isn't a great field commander. It's just that some guys aren't made for the spotlight.
That's true. Honore doesn't seem to be an intelligent guy, but he really is, no doubt about that. He always seemed like he was in deep thought or staring off into space whenever I saw him in the Army. But then he would start talking and he was on top of the situation the whole time!
Is anyone watching the video on FNC of the house to house search? There are seven guys (5 responders and 2 82nd Airborne) going to one house at a time. Trailing them is an army truck with what looks like 6 to 8 guys in it.
At this rate, they'll be six months finishing the job.

You have assumed the MSM take, if it ain't happening in front of our cameras, it ain't happening. So, is this the only patrol and the only truck there in NO, or is there perhaps several hundred more doing exactly as this unit?
