The Fifth Horseman: Anderson Attacks!

Anderson Attacks!

Finally, we're getting some outrage from the Main Stream Media over the government's sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina. CNN's Anderson Cooper, who has been in New Orleans all this week, verbally bitch-slapped Sen. Mary Landrieu for the government's shoddy response to the disaster on the Gulf Coast.

Here is a choice excerpt from the interview (via mediabistro.com):

LANDRIEU: Anderson, tonight, I don't know if you've heard -- maybe you all have announced it -- but Congress is going to an unprecedented session to pass a $10 billion supplemental bill tonight to keep FEMA and the Red Cross up and operating.

COOPER: Excuse me, Senator, I'm sorry for interrupting. I haven't heard that, because, for the last four days, I've been seeing dead bodies in the streets here in Mississippi. And to listen to politicians thanking each other and complimenting each other, you know, I got to tell you, there are a lot of people here who are very upset, and very angry, and very frustrated.

And when they hear politicians slap -- you know, thanking one another, it just, you know, it kind of cuts them the wrong way right now, because literally there was a body on the streets of this town yesterday being eaten by rats because this woman had been laying in the street for 48 hours. And there's not enough facilities to take her up.


Hats off to Anderson, for being one of the first in the MSM to finally speak the truth and try to hold the government to some measure of accountability. Let's hope others in the media choose to follow his example.

On to more Katrina news. Specifically, Administration lies about their responsibility for the disaster in New Orleans.

On ABC's Good Morning America, President Bush proclaimed:

"I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees. They did appreciate a serious storm but these levees got breached and as a result much of New Orleans is flooded and now we're having to deal with it and will..."


Sadly, that is not the case. In fact, engineers have been warning for years of the potential disaster if the New Orleans levees were to break. USA Today had this story: Engineers had warned of a looming disaster.

So, contrary to what Bush wants us to believe, there was plenty of warning about the vulnerability of the New Orleans levees. He simply chose to ignore it. This is hardly surprising. The man has a bad habit of ignoring the advice of his experts. This habit often has deadly results, such as when Dubya took us to war over evidence that 70% of his CIA analysts said was unreliable. Our troops and the Iraqi people are currently paying for that decision. Now its time for the people of New Orleans to pay for his decision to ignore warnings about the vulnerable levees.

The man is incompetent in the extreme. Under his watch, he has allowed thousands of his own people, and citizens abroad, to die from his bungling leadership. In the corporate world, incompetence of this magnitude would certainly result in his immediate dismissal. The man is completely and utterly incapable of leading a group of people of any sort, much less a nuclear superpower.

Sadly, we're stuck with him for another three years. All that remains to be seen is how many other people he can kill in that time.
