Posted on 09/09/2005 7:48:53 PM PDT by Daralundy
The city of New Orleans followed virtually no aspect of its own emergency management plan in the disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans officials also failed to implement most federal guidelines, which stated that the Superdome was not a safe shelter for thousands of residents.

When this gets to the Post, let us know.
The Washington Times puts its similarly named counterparts in New York and Los Angeles to shame.
I think this may get legs. Good article. Well written.
Bush's fault, of course.
Red Cross officials say the organization was well positioned to provide food, water and hygiene products to the thousands stranded in New Orleans. But the state refused to let them deliver the aid.
At least this is finally being reported in the MSM, though. Let's see if any of this info makes it into Hillary's precious commission.
The facts are out there. They won't go unnoticed forever.
Another one of those missing links, either carefully avoided or never even looked into by the LSM, because then that idiot Governor would have had to recieve the public's rath, and the LSM was having none of that.
"Hillary's Commission" doesn't yet exist, and if the GOP leadership of the Senate have one ball between them, she never will.
That means the odds are about even, or slightly worse...
"The city of New Orleans followed virtually no aspect of its own emergency management plan in the disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina."
I read the article. Where did they not follow their plan?
That woman held her people hostage!
Gov Blanco should be buried face down when her day comes so she can see where she's going.
Washington Times headline impresses the City was at fault, but lists state (Blanco) failures.
Conservatives blame city officials - of one effected city. Libs go after FEMA. Blanco kept clean. When Blanco later complains Fed money isn't given freely to State coffers MSM will blast Bush as insensitive, political.
Democratic money elite plans smoothly sailing.
The MSM will ignore this as much as possible. They have agendas to be maintained.
"When this gets to the Post, let us know."
They're after Nagin too. All works to protect Blanco.
So, I guess they let the Bush bashing go on for a few weeks before actually reporting on what really went down in NO. I swear, I hate the MSM with a deep, deep passion!
Hundreds perhaps thousands dead because of these two pukes.
Hell, Weekly World News puts the New York & Los Angeles Slimeses to shame.
Look-let's face it-it's all GW Bush's fault. The evacuation plan would have worked if Bush had not had the Dept. of Def shoot down the space ship that Louis Farrakhan and the infamous Rita X have talked about. That space ship was the REAL evacuation plan.
I had read that Hillary's commission was supposed to investigate the Federal governments response to the disaster only. If this is true you can bet that no matter how culpable state & local officials were even if blocking the Feds that those items wont be 'relevant' and not investigated. Only Federal govt errors & mistakes, and I think we all know who will get the blame for them.
