Bush warned of levees breaching in New Orleans
As if this is any surprise, Bush was warned by an expert expressing “grave concerns about the ability of the levees to withstand the hurricane. They also show that the President asked no questions.” I really wonder about Bush sometimes because this lack of inquisitiveness when people’s lives are on the line reminds me of Bush being warned of the 9/11 attacks and just sitting there. Get up man, you can read that children’s book later!
Now of course, the levees were a major issue way before Katrina, but when will the media/public start taking Bush to task for all his lies? Initially, Bush said, “I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees.” We now know that was a lie, not that I expected anything different. But my problem is that Bush is too comfortable in his ignorance.
But rather than rant on Bush, I think the blogs will come to rival newspapers as a main source of historical analysis. With that said, sometimes, it is better to report the facts (that are verifiable) rather than waste time writing a snazzy opinion piece about the facts.
Stay up fam,
