they knew full well as far back as 2002 that new orleans would be in big trouble due to flooding and hurricanes. that's why they were in the middle of building levees. then all of a sudden the funding was cut off to pay for the iraq war.

remember kids, war is good for the economy and ignorance is strength.
No, actually it is horrible for an economy overall. Only a select few sectors benefit from war. Go learn something before you start spouting crap like that.
