Study reports Corps caused Katrina disaster
A new study finds the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at fault for the floods that followed Hurricane Katrina, a newspaper reported Wednesday.
It said the Corps ignored hurricane research, built levees and floodwalls lower than Congress ordered, and failed to properly maintain them, according to The Times-Picayune, which obtained a copy before the report was released Wednesday.
The Team Louisiana report is Louisiana's official state study of the levee failures.

Once again, I am betting you are not from New Orleans, because though there may be pockets of this (I could lay it out on a map if you so choose), the majority of the city doesn't operate that way. There were poor and labor-class families in the lower 9th ward too, it was mixed there. Fats Domino and NFL players are still living in their homes, and I promise you, there are no gated communities in the ninth ward. Also in the lower 9th, 60 percent of the homes are owner-occupied.
Sorry I get very upset when I hear how blacks and whites dont get along.. its not the color of our skin, its the size of our bank accounts!!!
Gezzz this whole time its been about money, not about race.. Blacks where not the only slaves in history.. its always the poorest or the poor who are slaves.. Color is just to blind you from the truth of what sertinly classes have programmed you with and fooled you from the start...
