The Vetted Facts about the New Orleans Flood of 2005

After the levees broke, the Army Corps of Engineers quickly set a campaign in motion.

Falsehoods were put into the minds of Corps officials who made themselves available to the media.

There were over a dozen harmful falsehoods, but perhaps the most damaging one was what Corps Commander Lt. Gen Carl Strock told the New York Times.

Strock said New Orleans officials deserve a share of the blame for the failure of the 17th Street and London Avenue Canals that flooded the portion of the city with the most people and infrastructure.

That statement let the Corps off the hook. 

That statement gave the American people a reason to blame New Orleans flood survivors for their misfortune. 


Now, in 2012, the Commander admits he relied on things he had "heard but not researched." 

And so today, as Hurricane Season 2012 draws to a close, we are rolling out Myth Buster Number One.

Responsibility for the levee failures that flooded the city's main basin belongs to the Army Corps of Engineers mainly due to its tragic decision to save $100 million and to short-sheet steel pilings.

Click here for all ten Myth Busters.

With your help, we are winning.
