Have They Lost Their Minds, or are They Just Plain Stupid?

Doing a little blog reading and I ran across this from Daily KOS, not a blog I read on a regular basis, for good reason.

This from boingboing

10:57 Raw transcript of comments by NOLA evacuee Clara Barthelemy: "The 17th street levee was bombed by the Army Corps of Engineers to save the more valuable real estate in the city... to keep the French Quarter protected, the ninth ward was sacrificed... people are afraid to speak out... everyone who was near there heard the bombings... they bombed seven times. That's why they didn't fix the levees... 20 feet of water. Gators. People dying in water. They let the parishes go, not the city center. Tourist trap was saved over human life. A six year old girl was raped in here.. 9 year old boy killed. A man in the shower beaten. No hot food. No help for elderly."
Okey, dokey. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers demolished the levees to protect more valueable parts of the city. Right. And JFK orderd the bombing of Pearl Harbor to cover up the faked moon landings. Got it. Now I remember why I don't read Daily KOS.

Hat Tip to Carin.
