Forced Evacuation Ordered for New Orleans

AP via Fox News: Mayor Authorizes Forced Evacuations

"NEW ORLEANS — As floodwaters receded inch-by-inch Tuesday, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin (search) authorized law enforcement officers and the U.S. military to force the evacuation of all residents who refuse to heed orders to leave the dark, dangerous city.

Nagin's emergency declaration released late Tuesday targets those still in the city unless they have been designated by government officials as helping with the relief effort.

The move comes after some citizens bluntly told authorities who had come to deliver them from the waterlogged city that they would not leave their homes and property.

While acknowledging the declaration, police Capt. Marlon Defillo said late Tuesday that forced removal of citizens had not yet begun. He said that officers who were visiting homes were still reminding people that police may not be able to rescue them if they stay.

"That would be a P.R. nightmare for us," Defillo said of any forced evacuations. "That's an absolute last resort."


This is a good move, we've got to get those people out.

One thing is for sure, Cpt. Defilio is right. You can bet the MSM will make sure it's a PR nightmare.

I can just hear the see the cameras rolling now and the biting commentary!

"Ok Bob, get that tight shot - right there, those three cops and a guardsman, stuggling with that 69 year man, trying to forceably take him away from his home....his home that he and probably generations of family members have lived at......, Oooh! they used mace on him!" Bob did you get that? Yes it was mace and now the man is screaming!......Oh, this is hard to watch,.....good camera angle Bob!

Ok, now they have him on his back.....apparantly they are going to "hog tie" him......Oh, my, this is what we've come to, forcing people out of the home they have lived in for generations...."


Yeah, can't wait for this!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

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 …
