Another example of a blogger doing the hard research that reporters should be doing but aren’t. Pat at Brainster’s Blog argues that the President was right for statements he made in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when he said no one anticipated the levee breaks.
The President was ridiculed by any number of people who say that the levee breaches had been anticipated for years. Pat’s convincing argument (with many links) notes that it was an overtopping of the levees, not actual breaches ,which had been anticipated. Read his argument here and see what you think. Also note his link to an article that mentions the possibility that a barge broke the Canal Street levee, not the flood waters.
