So far Bart I have only seen two black politicians in New Orleans, the mayor and a senator. Where are all these corrupt (presumably white) Louisana and New Orleans corrupt government officials when the shit hit the fan. Surely someone in the U.S.Government is there to oversee that when money is thrown at a state that the state provides a record of what contingency plans have been put in place, even if only rhetoric? If the US Government was ready to move in, what took them so long, it only took five days to move mountains when the US was going into Irak, yet five days on and the levees are still flooding?

The responsibility goes largely on the shoulders of the corrupt
Louisiana and New Orleans government, who were required, by law, to have
an evacuation plan or let the U.S. government know that they didn't have
one, so that the U.S. government would be prepared to move in.
