New Orleans – Two Years Later
A national disgrace
Engineering failure, not natural disaster
What killed over 1,000; totally destroyed the homes of 250,000; and rendered hundreds of thousands homeless?
Not Hurricane Katrina.

The Bush Administration knew the levees had the potential to fail and did nothing. They did nothing during the catastrophe. And they’ve done nothing since to make good on their promises to help the people there rebuild.
