The formation of this enormous DHS beast is sucking up a lot of resources and manpower, and it was occupying everybody's attention in the months and
(B)I think incompetence is generally a more plausible explanation of government screw-ups, rather than malicious intent. That's my feeling most of
the time, and this situation seemed no different.
(C)The mass evacuations...
(D)In any case, the above is just my opinion. You might, indeed, be right about FEMAs response time being intentionally slow.
(A) consider that the former '800 Lb Gorilla' aka FEMA
is just a segment of the new '1Ton Gorilla' aka HomelandSecurity
and FEMAs orders to dispatch services & personnel comes down a chain-of-command
(B) i lean towards the 'malicious intent' as an equal part of the mix with incompetence...as i suggested in another thread, the neocons/NWOs
which are the backbone of this regime, seized an 'opportunity'
- -> the opportunity provided by natural forces, as in a cat.4 hurricane,
which gave the social engineers a large experimental lab to tinker with,
observing the group dynamics of isolated, deprived & 'given-up-for-dead' group which numbered in the 10s of thousands, in real time and in actual
realistic, real world conditions.
(C) as far as the mass evacuations...
that segment of the city which resided in the slum areas, who also made up the class labeled the 'chronically poor',
are the same ones who have a wary-eye about gov't decrees or actions,
and the idea of boarding buses to somewhere while leaving all your belongings at the mercy of the predators & opportunists,
was not a elective option (given the odds of a catastrophe happening at some tomorrow)
?Did I mention that the monthly stipend checks were soon to be received!?
...that was another reason for some of those who did not evacuate.
heck, they felt they needed to do what they could to protect their resources from theft by the ever present vultures in society
(D) refer back to the (A) & (B) responses.
FEMA will most likely be the scapegoat, and the disinformation machine
will obfuscate the 'experiment' model, which i believe was in effect
