Lies, Damned Lies, and Politics

October 2001 – Scientific American : Drowning New Orleans

October, 2004 – National Geographic : Gone With the Water

September 1, 2005 – George Bush says “I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees.” (Worse, his bluff wasn’t called; see mediamatters for one dissection).

This one detail sums up the entire US Government’s response to the disaster; the same bold-faced lies that they’ve been spouting for years.

Of course, one wonders how Canada would react to an equivalent disaster… *sigh.
