We owe the Vetted Facts about the
New Orleans Flood to the Survivors

Dear Christopher

Five days after the levees broke in New Orleans, then-speaker of the house Dennis Hastert set the tone at our nation's capital with these 5 words. 

"That place could be bulldozed."

With that, the city's residents were thrown under the bus. Hastert and eventually all of Washington thought we were fools for living here.

Our nation's leaders thought it was inevitable that New Orleans would flood again due to mother nature and our supposedly corrupt politicians.

Well, now the people of New Orleans are vindicated. And not a moment too soon.

This coming August, a new article will appear in a highly reputable science journal. It should change what people say about the New Orleans Flood during Katrina.

The article is written by nationally recognized experts David Rogers and Ray Seed. It contains a retraction of statements they made in the highly cited NSF-funded levee investigation they co-chaired in 2006.

Their article, accepted for publication in Water Policy (the official journal of the World Water Council) backpedals on damning statements Rogers and Seed made, namely that local levee board officials used political ties to force the Army Corps of Engineers to build the inadequate levee system that failed disastrously during Katrina.

The paper tells the vetted story, namely that the Army Corps doomed New Orleans because:

1) the Corps made a tragic mistake on a large-scale study they did in the 1980s, and

2) the Corps believed it was congressionally mandated to build structures that cost the least.

The 14-page article is also a “one stop shop” and addresses most, if not all, of the significant issues and events relating to flooding during Katrina.

The new paper separates the facts from the fairy tale.

Finally, the people of New Orleans can throw off their "cloak of shame."

We have obtained an advance copy. You can see it here. The final will be published in August 2015.

This article, and the New York Times story about it, are proof that your time supporting levees.org is well-invested.

If there were mostly, wealthy white people, living in New Orleans; The Army Corps would have built superb Levees.

Man made disaster not natural.
Rumors too they were blown up. The levies that is.

It was a man made disaster, and that's been proven now - and you're right; what ever happened to the investigation of suspected people blowing them up?
