Another Meme Bites the Dust
Remember New Orleans? Katrina? All George Bush's fault according to the left. But once again, the truth comes out months later and the media gives it a little play while not correcting any of the initial misreporting:
- New Orleans' levee system was routinely underfunded and therefore inadequate to protect against hurricanes, according to an independent report released Monday.
- The report also called for an overhaul of the agencies that oversee flood protection. It took aim at Congress for its piecemeal funding over the past 50 years, and at state and local levee authorities for failing to properly oversee maintenance of the levees.
- the Corps used cheap material sand instead of clay. According to investigators, the foundation for the levee walls were in some places just 13 feet deep they should have been 60. [all emphasis added - SCC]
So someone please explain why Bush is to blame for 50 years of underfunding AND actually following Federal Law by not interfering with state and local maintenance issues?
