President Bush says:
"This situation is totally unacceptable!"
But don't blame him, he's just running the country... poorly
In the past several years the Corp of Engineers have stressed the importance of a new levee system and revitalization of the coastal wet lands that protect the city of New Orleans, a city that sinks 3 feet every century.
The Bush administration has cut 10's of millions of dollars that funded this effort.
The cost for a completely new levee system... 18 Billion
The cost so far for the war in Iraq... 191 Billion and growing
If the levee's hadn't of broke most of these people would be home cleaning up after the Hurricane.
The flooding was NOT a natural disaster... It was an avoidable one.
