FEMA Won't Let Camp Residents Communicate With Media

FEMA camps, staffed by private security, are preventing residents who survived Hurricane Katrina from speaking with the media about camp conditions.
Dekotha Devall, whose New Orleans home was destroyed by the storm, was in her FEMA-provided trailer telling [a] reporter of the hardships of life in the camp when a security guard knocked on the door.

Bush, Chertoff Shown on Video Being Warned of New Orleans Levee Disaster Possibility

Bush was quoted after the Hurricane Katrina disaster having said "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees".

It's common knowledge that the levee breaches were anticipated, even on the pages of major American publications. As with 9/11, the Bush administration was warned, but fumbled the ball.

The Associated Press have gotten ahold of video showing Bush and Michael Chertoff, Department of Homeland security head, being warned the levees could breach the day before Hurricane Katrina hit.

Michael Brown Keeps on Truckin'

Michael Brown, director of FEMA during its structural gutting and botched response to Hurricane Katrina, believes in Himself! Even though his ineptitude likely contributed to the deaths of thousands, he is facing his fear and offering disaster preparedness consulting services! Says Brown:

State Tries to Take Katrina Evacuee's Newborn

A Texas hospital performed an illegal drug test on a Katrina evacuee's newborn baby and, based on a false positive result for marijuana, contacted Child Protective Services, who took custody of the newborn and her 3-year-old brother.

The drug test turned out to be wrong and hospital officials were unable to explain how they legally obtrained the urine sample.

The Slow and Steady Gutting of FEMA

As Michael Brown gets pummelled by the investigation into FEMA's Louisiana failure, Government Executive magazine has an interesting article about FEMA misspending and the Bush administration's slow and steady gutting of the agency.

Eyeballing Katrina Dead

Cryptome has a small assortment of the kind of pictures the US goverenment doesn't want media to take. Luckily, even mainstream media such as Time Magazine are ignoring the Bush administration's attempt at press censorship.

FEMA's Role in the US has an interesting article on FEMA's role in the US and on the federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

Let the Real Looting Begin

Reuters has issued a story detailing how friends of Bush the Younger are positioned to get their hands on billions of US taxpayer dollars though New Orleans reconstruction contracts.

Congress has already appropriated more than $60 billion in emergency funding as a down payment on recovery efforts projected to cost well over $100 billion.

Lack of NOLA Emergency Response Led Doctors to Kill Patients

With the lack of emergency response in New Orleans, doctors felt they were forced to make the decision to "put down" patients, rather than subject them to the violence of the looters or death by starvation.

According to one emergency official, William 'Forest' McQueen, "Those who had no chance of making it were given a lot of morphine and lain down in a dark place to die."

Because euthanasia is illegal in Louisiana, and The Mail on Sunday is protecting the identities of the medical staff who have come forward.

SuperFriends of the South!

I think that when people say that the whole New Orleans thing is racist, they are being ignorant and reactioning. George Bush can hang around with whoever he wants to, and that does not make him racist. And maybe he was on a vacation that he liked, on his farm, when Hurricane Katrina hit?
