The Baghdadization of New Orleans Part IV

Tim Russert says:

"But the fact is that, when there was now evacuation and no pre-positioning of supplies within the city, that led to the current situation.President George W. Bush said the other day that no one expected the levees to break.Well, with all respect, study after study, including FEMA's own tabletop exercises last year, all included the breaking or the giving of the levees. Everyone who had studied the issue knew that with a Category 3, 4 or 5 storm, that was a very strong likelihood."

You got it, Tim. It's just like the State Department telling the Pentagon and W that all hell was gonna break loose in Baghdad after Sadaam was toppled. But you don't have to think about the future, you don't have to pre-position, if it isn't you, your kin, your class, your color, your religion at risk --- fuck all those people.

I wonder if the reaction would have been different if Jenna and Barbara were stranded in a flooding attic or in the Convention Center being raped. Of course, if we see the lack of love extended to his niece by his brother Jeb, he might say fuck them as well.
