You've strayed far from topic Carol__Nagin was but the Mayor of New Orleans__he had no sort of authority outside the city limits and FYI the 9th ward debacle was due to flooding which occurred well after the storm had passed through.<quoted text>
Even a New Orleans newspaper says Nagin is a liar:
"Ray Nagin's claims about NOPD crumble under investigation"
Why do you liberals - and enigmas - insist on believing liars?
Washington Post - "Federal officials tried to wrest authority from Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco.
"Shortly before midnight Friday, the Bush administration sent her a proposed legal memorandum asking her to request a federal takeover of the evacuation of New Orleans.... The administration sought unified control over all local police and state National Guard units reporting to the governor. Louisiana officials rejected the request after talks throughout the night concerned that such a move would be comparable to a federal declaration of martial law."
Who are you going to believe? A liar or the Washington Post?
Katrina was a massive storm that laid waste to portions of three states, no one* was prepared for what happened, no one was leading the way, no one was in charge.
Tell ya what__share your ignorance on Katrina with someone else, maybe someone on that blog you linked will listen to your nonsense.
*WalMart anticipated a disaster and had dozens of tractor trailers full of water and other emergency goods staged and ready to move in as quickly as it was safe.
