Every Crime Scene Has a Smoking Gun

With all the coverage Katrina has wrought this week, one story has been completely ignored by the MSM - but covered immensely by bloggers.

Yet this story holds the key to the source of the outrage over the Governmental response to Katrina.

The question:

"Why did those people have to suffer at the Superdome?"

The NY Times tells us a story of disorganization, incompetence and outright criminal negligence that boggles the mind. In fact, had this been a third world country, Nagin and Blanco would have been taken out and shot.

Yet as most articles and news reports over the last two weeks have tried to tell us that the problems begin at the Federal Level (Parent), and it's just a simple case of the "Children" at the local and state level just being 'overwhelmed'.

Poor, misunderstood and incompetent children.

Had the Mayor of New Orleans used these buses
to get people out there would have been a lot less at the Superdome. Had the mayor secured the Superdome (something easily done - where else would police be during the storm?"), AND had used his emergency powers to confiscate the materials in the local Walmart to provide food and water to those inside.

Not to mention the fact that had the Governor allowed the Red Cross in after the storm to provide additional food and water and medical care, there wouldn't be the "outrage" we have seen this week.

The fact is that everything that could have went wrong, went wrong where it couldn't possibly go wrong - at the State and Local level, There is no escaping that.

There is no escaping the Smoking Gun.

The "Smoking Gun" is the buses. Those 500 plus buses that could have ferried more than 20,000 people out of the city. Out of harms way.

"But to where?" the Mayor would ask?

Indeed in this article and others he is given a pass because people ask the same question, "Where would he have taken them?"

My answer is, "Anywhere dunder-head!" Anywhere was better than where they ended up! Anywhere AWAY from the storm, away from the Super-Trap YOU put them in. You don't have to be a Comcast Genius to figure that out!

Besides the fact that it was IN THE PLAN, Mayor Nagin, the Plan!

Cripes! Why is this so hard for people to understand?

Don't answer that..., I know: If it can't be blamed on Bush, it doesn't lead.....

Sad - a freaking sad commentary on the media.

To that end I hope that bloggers everywhere keep publishing these pictures. Keep publishing them until they are everywhere, on every blog, every search on the internet.

Yes, these pictures should be on the cover of Time Magazine, the front page of MSNBC, and FOX and every other mainstream media outlet - with the headline:

"Why didn't Nagin and Blanco Use the Buses?" Why did you let them die?"

You won't see these kind of questions, not from the press.

No, instead CNN would rather just show the victims - dead and rotting. It tells you where their priorities are.

UPDATE: Article from the Palm Beach Post (btw, Heavily Democratic paper), showing Gulf States how things ought to be done. As I've been saying, we in Florida have it down to almost a fine science. It isn't hard to do - just plan and implement!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
