A Great Post From David Vance of A Tangled Web


You want to know who to deal for the drowning of New Orleans - I'll tell you who - the radical environ-mentalists who even at this time seek to shift responsibilty for their recklessness to President Bush, aided and abetted by a less than investigative MSM. Check this out.
"Decades ago, the Green Left – pursuing its agenda of valuing wetlands and topographical “diversity” over human life – sued to prevent the Army Corps of Engineers from building floodgates that would have prevented significant flooding that resulted from Hurricane Katrina.
The key fact here is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity Hurricane Barrier Project planned to build fortifications at two strategic locations, which would keep massive storms on the Gulf of Mexico from causing Lake Pontchartrain to flood the city.
But the Greens sued and the authorities capitulated. Nothing was permitted to be done. Now the city lies drowned as Lake Pontchartrain has emptied itself EXACTLY as predicted. Bet the MSM won't push this angle.
