Ok, so why didn't the Mayor use the buses?

MSNBC: Katrina forecasters were remarkably accurate

"MIAMI - For all the criticism of the Bush administration’s confused response to Hurricane Katrina, at least two federal agencies got it right: the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center.

They forecast the path of the storm and the potential for devastation with remarkable accuracy.

The performance by the two agencies calls into question claims by President Bush and others in his administration that Katrina was a catastrophe that no one envisioned."


While I'm writing this, I am baby.. - or rather puppy sitting my seven-month old puppy. One thing you'll notice about a puppy is that at times they are the most stubborn animals on the face of the earth. I mean once they grab onto something they just chew on it and gnaw on it, and chew on it like - forever!

Yep, their stubborn all right....... just like our present MSM.

For instance, if you were to believe their take on Katrina, there was no Mayor or Governor or even Senators in Louisiana because as they will tell you, and keep telling you, "It's Bush fault!" It's as if Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco were "minors" with no inherant responsibility or accountability.

...."You know, they're just ...well, ..you know.....they were confused. It was a big storm!...come on, leave 'em alone!"

However, in this article the writer sort of slips. He slips because you can't throw the leavy breach/overflow on anything the Bush administration did. The simple fact is that it is well known by now that Louisiana recieved more than enough money to fix/shore up their levees. They didn't do it, instead spending the money they were given for "other purposes", some of which were less than ethical.

But again, those evacuations were not the responsibility of the Federal Government - FEMA doesn't primarily evacuate, they don't call that shot. Local and Federal Governments do. No matter how much the MSM tries to hide that fact, the people of New Orleans, or at least the ones ABC News interviewed know who was responsible. They know who was primarily accountable for getting them out of the city.

For all the "confusion" this article attributes to the Federal Government, it pales in comparison to the marked incompetence of the Nagin/Blanco duo that led to the "Cluster-Cluck" at the local level which was the greatest contributing factor in New Orleans.

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

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
