Default Re: I think prof. Makow missed one facet in his latest article, and that is the militarization angle

Interesting article, and I love the composite photo.
I never really thought of the military occupation angle as the underlying motivation for the New Orleans Holocaust.
Maybe as a "trial run" operation it makes some sense, but to me the real objective still seems like inciting public disapproval against the Bush regime.
But the underlying commentary seems to be that FEMA didn't have the neccessary funding, jurisdiction, etc. and that the separation of powers led to this fiasco.
