AlterNet: Why the Levee Broke

AlterNet: Why the Levee Broke: "The president told us that we needed to fight in Iraq to save lives here at home. Yet -- after moving billions of domestic dollars to the Persian Gulf -- there are bodies floating through the streets of Louisiana. What does George W. Bush have to say for himself now?"

While Iraqis sink in the Tigris, New orleans sinks into history on the back of funding that was diverted from flood defenses to the desert oil supply.

Well, if you are going to spend 67 billion on a war something has to give somewhere.

This time it is the flood protection for a major American city.

Never mind this one George W. All your coastal cities will be going under as global warming really gets going.
Meanwhile you will keep on ignoring the truth I suspect.
