Thanks for the memory refresher! It's further proof that early news coverage is usually the best, before the powers that be have time to craft the "official" story. Multiple-explosion stories were common in the early reports of the Oklahoma City bombing, before the single-explosion theory took hold, and reports of bombs exploding inside the WTC towers were common in the early 9/11 reporting as well. Needless to say, the explosions in New Orleans will probably disappear into the dustbin of history as well, as the "official" account of what happened takes root in the public mind.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police shot eight people carrying guns on a New Orleans bridge Sunday, killing five or six, a deputy chief said. A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers said the victims were contractors on their way to repair a canal.

The contractors were walking across a bridge on their way to launch barges into Lake Pontchartrain to fix the 17th Street Canal, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Corps.

Earlier Sunday, New Orleans Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley said police shot at eight people, killing five or six.

The shootings took place on the Danziger Bridge, which spans a canal connecting Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River.

No other details were immediately available.

"Among the most telling anomalies pointing to something terribly afoot is the gun battle, killing 5, that occurred at the breached levy between the New Orleans Police Department and, what have now been identified as US military agents. An Associated Press report, which has now disappeared, stated that at least five USA Defense Department personnel where shot dead by New Orleans police officers in the proximity of the breeched levy."


"A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers said later that those killed were "federal contractors" on their way to "repair" a canal. The "contractors" were on their way to launch barges into Lake Pontchartrain, in an operation to "fix" the 17th Street Canal, according to the Army Corps of Engineers spokesman. Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley of New Orleans later reported that his policemen had shot at eight suspicious people near the breached levy, killing five or six.

Who were these "military agents" that were killed by the police near the 17th Street Canal breached levy and what were they doing there? Why did the New Orleans police find it necessary to shoot and kill 5 or 6 of them? No one is saying anything and it appears that the news story has now been swept under the rug. Were these US Department of Defense personnel a Special Forces group or Navy Seals with top secret orders to sabotaged the levy? There are verifiable reports that at least 100 New Orleans police officers have disappeared from the face of the earth and that two have committed suicide. Could these be policemen that died defending the levy against sabotage by "federal contractors"?

Another telling incident that points to a "nefarious plan" is what New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin said at the height of the crisis. He said publicly, "I fear the CIA may take me out!" Mayor Nagin, a Black, said this twice. He told a reporter for the Associated Press: "If the CIA slips me something and next week you don't see me, you'll all know what happened." Later he told interviewers for CNN on a live broadcast that he feared the "CIA might take me out." What does Mayor Ray Nagin know and why does he fear the CIA? "

There is no strategic reason to blow a levee to save another area. That is absolutely proposterous. I've read some really dumb things on ATS but this about takes the cake.
[edit on 8-9-2005 by intrepid]

I have no comment on the speculation that the levees were blown. I actually can't accept that at this time. But I do have a comment on your question about why NO would be allowed to flood.

The night the first levee breaches occured Mayor Nagin, Governor Blanco and FEMA met and a unanimous agreement was reached that the number one priority was to get the levee fixed to prevent the total flooding of NO. Everybody left this meeting with this agreed. When Nagin woke up the next morning someone - that some one still not named - unilaterally reversed that decision and sent the helicopters that should have been working to fill the failed area with anything they could drop in it were sent to rescue people off housetops.

The answer to why this might occur intentionally - the allowing of NO to flood - reduces to insurance pay-outs. Prior to NO flooding the insurance companies were looking at anywhere between 5 and 20 billion dollars in hurricane damage. And a HUGE percent of that was valid, payable claims on damage caused by wind, either directly or indirectly (objects, trees, etc. being blown down and on to houses).

The minute NO was allowed to flood, all those valid house and property insurance claims went to near-zero. Because the insurance companies could now step back and say - OOPS! this is flood damage. And flood insurance doesn't come from private insurance companies - flood damage comes from the Federal Government.

Not only did the insurance companies get out of the structural and property damage claims, but they got out of the "loss of use" expenses which are expenses designed to pay your living expenses up to 2 years while you are waiting for your home to become "habitable" again.

And if you think the insurance companies aren't playing this "get out of a jail free card" to its fullest - just start scouring the news coming out of Louisiana and Mississippi.

One couple with a $300,000 home now has their entire property covered with other people's debris. The waterline was visibly no higher than about 4 feet on the first floor. The roof is gone. The insurance company will only pay them $31,000 for contents (they had $70,000 in content coverage) and nothing on structural damage, even though it is physically impossible that the 4' water surge blew their roof off their house.

But it gets worse...

Federal flood insurance is capped at $250,000. So for this couple they are automatically at least $50,000 upside down.

But it gets worse...

The PRIVATE home insurance appraiser of the house insurance company that now refuses to pay anything on the damage is the person who now will estimate the pay-out on the federal flood insurance.

For the above home - which has entire water damage to the lower half of the house, no roof and water damage to the entire top floor of the house (and the contents), the entire first floor packed with debris from other houses, and debris so dense 360 degrees on the yard to where you can't get to the house - the appraiser estimated the damage at $115,000.

These people are $185,000 upside down on their house now. Their house as been deemed "uninhabitable" but since the private house insurance company is bailing due to "flood damage" they don't get the "loss of use" expense pay-out, and they got half the content value they were insured for. Even though they had 2 boats destroyed that were setting on their property.

You are witnessing the largest personal property loss - and I mean PERMANENT. You are witnessing the largest US taxpayer gouge. You are witnessing the largest overnight profit probably in the history of the world.

But when the insurance companies go, the banks go...and the economy GOES.

That's why they could have let NO flood.

As soon as NO flooded, I knew there wouldn't be any insurance payouts. In this case losing everything means, permanent loss. So one has to wonder what all the fuss about rebuilding the great city of New Orleans that Bush was reading off cue cards last night is REALLY about?

I first heard a report on explosive residue being found at the Levee posted on a White Power website. Many of you have probably seen it but since it's relevent to this discussion:

New Orleans, LA -- Divers inspecting the ruptured levee walls surrounding New Orleans found something that piqued their interest: Burn marks on underwater debris chunks from the broken levee wall !

One diver, a member of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, saw the burn marks and knew immediately what caused them. He secreted a small chunk of the cement inside his diving suit and later arranged for it to be sent to trusted military friends at a The U.S. Army Forensic Laboratory at Fort Gillem, Georgia for testing.

According to well placed sources, a military forensic specialist determined the burn marks on the cement chunks did, in fact, come from high explosives. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity said "We found traces of boron-enhanced fluoronitramino explosives as well as PBXN-111. This would indicate at least two separate types of explosive devices."

The levee ruptures in New Orleans did not take place during Hurricane Katrina, but rather a day after the hurricane struck. Several residents of New Orleans and many Emergency Workers reported hearing what sounded like large, muffled explosions from the area of the levee, but those were initially discounted as gas explosions from homes with leaking gas lines.

If these allegations prove true, the ruptured levee which flooded New Orleans was a deliberate act of mass destruction perpetrated by someone with access to military-grade UNDERWATER high explosives.

well done valhall the money $$ pigs

i was watching the weather channel documentary that documented an earlier NO hurricane that did very bad damage as well as flooding to the city in the early 1900's . I was very SURPRISED to hear them (TWC) say that alot of katrina victims thought the gov't flooded the 9'th ward on purpose BECAUSE THE army corps of ENGINEERS DID DO THIS in the early 20'th century!!!! to save the wealthier areas......well gee whiz...guess it's not far fetched at all

it is amazing to me the pschology of human nature to be able to bury one's head in the sand and dismiss things out of hand , so that they can protect themselves from feeling vulnerable by those that are supposed to protect's incredible and people definitely take advantage of this ! $ !
