Very Painful Questions About New Orleans
By America's Patriot
There's something very wrong with the chronology of the levee breaks in
Do you find it highly suspicious that the levees in New Orleans broke at4:00 AM on August 30th?
The main storm surge from Hurricane Katrina would have been washed into
Lake Pontchartrain at about 7:00 AM on August 29th when the
counterclockwise motion of Katrina was pushing water from the Gulf of
Mexico into the lake.
Why is there a 21 hour discrepancy between the storm surge and the
collapse of the levees?
During the initial news coverage, some media outlets tried to explain
away the time discrepancy as a "secondary storm surge" off of Lake
Pontchartrain . Hurricanes DO NOT, never have and never will create
"secondary storm surges". There's only one storm surge, the main surge
while a hurricane makes landfall.
A secondary storm surge is about as believable as a magic bullet. But of course anybody who logically investigates the facts of this catastrophe will be accused of spending way too much time on the grassy knoll.
Now lets move on to the next two questions.
Why did pumping station #6, according to a statement made by New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin during an interview with Matt Lauer on the August 29th edition of the Today Show, fail in the lower 9th ward, which also happens to be the section of New Orleans which is the deepest part of the city? Why did the Industrial Canal levee break near the 9th ward a few hours later?
It's interesting that both the failure of pumping station #6 and the
Industrial Canal levee occurred within hours of each other within the
same geographic area.
The breakdown of pumping station #6 would have gradually allowed the
flooding of the 9th ward and force it's residents to flee to the second
floor and roofs of their houses.
The immediate flood of water from the breach of the Industrial Canal
levee a few hours later would have easily drowned everyone who was
unlucky enough to still be inside of their home in the lower 9th ward
and waterlog every single one of those houses up to the roof. By the
time the water is pumped out the city, all of those waterlogged houses
will have to be condemned and torn down.
In light of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent eminent domain decision on
private property, the City of New Orleans can easily condemn all of
those destroyed properties and seize the land under eminent domain when
the city is rebuilt. Of course with most of the residents of the 9th
ward ending up dead, there's no one left to reclaim the properties or to fight back against city hall. Very convenient for anyone wishing to
seize that property.
So lets continue by looking into the "construction projects" connected
to the levees.
Why did the broken section of the 17th Street Canal levee undergo
"construction" within the past year?
"The Senate was seeking to restore some of the SELA funding cuts for
2006. But now it's too late. One project that a contractor had been
racing to finish this summer was a bridge and levee job right at the
17th Street Canal, site of the main breach on Monday."
Why did the broken section of the Industrial Canal levee undergo
"construction" within the past two years?
"West Bank Levee & Floodwall, Phase 1
Existing levee to be enlarged to 22.4 feet above sea level with 1,300
linear feet of earthen levee and 300 linear feet of combination earthen
embankment and I-type floodwall. Pedestrian walkway and benches
provided. On west bank of Industrial Canal from St. Claude Avenue to
Mississippi River .
Estimated Start: June 2003. Construction Period: 10 months.
DESIGN BEING COMPLETED PILE DRIVING TRUCK USE"
Don't you find it very convenient that the levees broke in the exact
same sections that were undergoing construction?
Predictably, skeptics and disinformation specialists, who will go out of their way to discredit serious inquiries into the levee collapses, will make up excuses and claim "shoddy construction" caused the collapse of both the 17th Street and Industrial Canals.
Of course the "shoddy construction" explanation was the same excuse used by skeptics and disinformation specialists to explain away the implosion of the World Trade Center towers and Building 7 on 9/11, which have been repeatedly proven to be controlled demolitions.
The cuts in federal funding for the levee system in New Orleans brings
up even more interesting questions.
Why was the funding for the levee system cut by the Bush Administration?
According the New Orleans newspapers, several articles were published
condemning the Bush Administrations slashing of funds for the
maintenance of the levees in New Orleans;
"In early 2004, as the cost of the conflict in Iraq soared, President
Bush proposed spending less than 20 percent of what the Corps said was
needed for Lake Pontchartrain, according to a Feb. 16, 2004, article, in
New Orleans CityBusiness.
On June 8, 2004, Walter Maestri, emergency management chief for
Jefferson Parish, Louisiana ; told the Times-Picayune: "It appears that
the money has been moved in the president's budget to handle homeland
security and the war in Iraq , and I suppose that's the price we pay.
Nobody locally is happy that the levees can't be finished, and we are
doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue
On the September 1st, 2005 edition of Good Morning America, President Bush claimed that "no one anticipated" that the levees would break in New Orleans;
even though Homeland Security had drilled for such a scenario in 2004
which was titled "Hurricane Pam";
"Hurricane Pam brought sustained winds of 120 mph, up to 20 inches of
rain in parts of southeast Louisiana and storm surge that topped levees
in the New Orleans area. More than one million residents evacuated and
Hurricane Pam destroyed 500,000-600,000 buildings. Emergency officials
from 50 parish, state, federal and volunteer organizations faced this
scenario during a five-day exercise held this week at the State
Emergency Operations Center in Baton Rouge ."
This willful ignorance by Bush is very similar to a comment made just
after 9/11 by then National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice who
claimed "nobody had any idea that planes would be crashed into the World
Trade Center" even though there were previous reports as well as NORAD
and Pentagon drills(Operation Boijinka) which suggested planes would be
used for terrorism.
Members of the Bush Administration knew full well this catastrophe was
coming. Which begs the question: Were the collapse of the 17th Street
Canal and the Industrial Canal levees deliberate events?
In light of all the evidence that's piling up, the conclusion would have to be "yes".
Were the levees destroyed with explosive charges?
Shaped charges would be the most convenient way to rupture those levees
and the only way to explain why they ruptured so quickly instead of
slowly crumbling apart in small pieces. With the city and the
surrounding areas evacuated, there would be very few witnesses to this
type of deliberate sabotage, especially if it took place at 4 o'clock in the morning.
Were shaped explosive charges hidden inside of sealed, waterproof
compartments during the "construction" on the 17th Street and Industrial Canal levees and conveniently detonated in the aftermath of Katrina?
In light of evidence of shaped charges being used in the destruction the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19th, 1995 and inside of the World Trade Center complex on September 11th, 2001, the probability is very high.
The circumstances surrounding the breaches of the levees becomes even
stranger with the next piece of information.
Since a truck bomb was used to mask the presence of shaped charges in
the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City and that the crashes of planes and
resulting fires were used to mask the shaped charge demolition of the
World Trade Center, we now have to turn to the mysterious barge that was conveniently parked near the area of the Industrial Canal levee breach;
Barge in the breach?
A loose barge may have caused a large breach in the east side of the
Industrial Canal floodwall that accelerated Hurricane Katrina's rising
floodwaters in New Orleans, Army Corps of Engineers project manager Al
Naomi said Monday.
Naomi said the barge was found on the land side of the floodwall,
leading corps officials to believe that it could have crashed through
the wall and sent a huge amount of water -- which was already pouring
over the top -- into the neighborhoods immediately downriver.
Why was a barge parked next to the area of the Industrial Canal levee
breach, especially when everyone knew a Category 5 hurricane was
approaching the city? Was it planted there to make the collapse of the
Industrial Canal levee look like an accident?
During the Oklahoma City Bombing, a truck with a fertilizer and fuel oil bomb was parked in front of the Murrah building by Timothy McVeigh and several Iraqi intelligence agents(who were brought into the U.S. by Bush Sr. during his term in office and were caught assisting McVeigh on video surveillance tapes confiscated under national security) in order to make it look like the truck bomb took down the building even though we know shaped charges caused the hole in the Murrah building.
It was the same way with the World Trade Center on 9/11. Planes were
crashed into the buildings and the resulting fires were used in the
governments whitewash of the events which claimed that the steel columns melted and caused the collapse. FDNY firefighter tapes prove the fireswere nearly out before the shaped charge implosions of Towers
1 and 2 as well as Building 7, a demolition which was admitted several
months later by Larry Silverstein on a PBS documentary called "America
So the presence of this barge in the exact area where the Industrial
Canal levee breached is highly suspicious.
On a side note, the original story linked above has been "scrubbed" from the main Minneapolis Star Tribune website and replaced with a totally different story. Luckily the original article was found in the Google cache. Looks like whoever destroyed those levees are putting massive pressure on newspapers and websites to censor the truth.
Now we have to ask, who benefits from this tragedy?
Halliburton, the company previously headed by Dick Cheney, has already
been awarded contracts to clean up the damage from Katrina.
"Also, as part of the company's Construction Capabilities (CONCAP)
contract with the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC),
Halliburton's subsidiary KBR is providing power distribution
restoration, emergency roof repair and debris removal at three
Mississippi Naval facilities that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina.
Additionally, KBR will begin performing damage assessments on other
Naval facilities in New Orleans as soon as it is deemed safe to do so."
Just like with the aftermath of the Iraq War, Dick Cheney and
Halliburton will line their pockets by making billions of dollars off of the suffering of thousands of innocents.
Unfortunately for truth seekers, there will be influential individuals
in the truth movement who will say that people who ask these types of
questions "are shooting their mouths off" or will shut down inquiries
into this event by saying "lets not get into this right now because of
the scope of this tragedy". Unfortunately, they are unintentionally and
unwittingly letting the perpetrators get away with this crime against
humanity in New Orleans .
But those of us who ask these painful questions can always take solace
in the following quote from Mark Twain:
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave,
and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for
then it costs nothing to be a patriot."
It's clear the destruction of New Orleans with the levee breaches was a
deliberately manufactured event which was designed to bring about the
chaos we saw in New Orleans and to bring us closer to the New World
Order police state.
