The US Army Corps of Engineers came out clean and admitted that they had failed to adequately and consistently protect the city of New Orleans with their levees. This is quite honorable of them. However, more interesting in this article is that an independent study put out by UC Berkeley “found that New Orleans flood protection was routinely underfunded.” So the US Army Corps of Engineers may have failed to build and repair their levees adequately, but that wasn’t exactly their fault if they lacked the federal funds to do so. So guess what department is to blame, thus and therefore? This is what I was saying back when it happened.
