Reuters just posted a story about Mike Brown saying that the video of the teleconference between Bush and his Homeland Security team vindicates him. Reuters failed to point out how it directly contradicted his testimony to the senate last month. I heard him say in to the senators that he did not know that the Super Dome was going to be used as an emergency shelter.
Then today I heard him on the video saying that he thought it was a bad idea to put people their. The point is, he DID KNOW that the Super Dome was a planned evacuation site. I do give him credit for advising that it was a bad idea, but lying to congress and being negligent is still criminal.
His inexperience was a huge part of the failures but the lion’s share of the blame should be placed on our focus on military and corporate power, while our infrastructure falls apart right under our feet. Just not enough rich white feet yet.
We must do more to secure our own towns and lives from this system of corruption. My bio diesel and recycling companies are up and running. I am trying to help my area become more self sufficient and more efficient at the same time. I am sure every city has its share of movers and shakers that need help right now. It could be the difference if your town has hard times due to mother nature or George W. Bush.
