Trouble for BushSalon.com | "No one can say they didn't see it coming"
This article isn't going to do any favours for Bush. The article drifts substantially about halfway through, but starts off with a stinging indictment of Bush's complicity in the destruction of New Orleans.
I know, first thoughts are, "That's taking conspiracy theories just a bit too far don't you think?" Here's the key line:
A year ago the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed to study how New Orleans could be protected from a catastrophic hurricane, but the Bush administration ordered that the research not be undertaken.
Not only that, but apparently
Every two miles of wetland between the Crescent City and the Gulf reduces a surge by half a foot.
The article claims a policy to protect wetlands from developers was overturned in 2003. Subsequent assessments by the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corp of Engineers, that found that activity to be endangering New Orleans, were ridiculed by administration.
It's all in the article, if you can just read that stuff and not let the rabid anti-Bush writing later on taint your view of what the article is about...
