I watched CNN those first four days after Katrina and they repeatedly showed the head of FEMA stating that people at the New Orleans stadium had food and drink. At the same time the reporters were interviewing people at the stadium screaming that they had no food or water. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who was lying.

Welcome to ATS, I hope you enjoy your time on the board. As far as your questions go I would say learn a lesson and do not wait for someone to rescue you be prepared and have a plan and if you are told to get out get out. Do not just blame FEMA although they must accept some of the blame there is plenty to go around with the state and local government and the victims themselves. Do not fall prey to the main stream media and look at what the levey board in N.O. did with the money for improvements. Of all places the New Orleans Times has some good reading about the corruption of their own leaders.
