New Orleans Levees

and money wasted in Iraq.

This story of money being lost by the Iraqi minitry of defense is shocking.

The decision by the Bush administration to reduce funding on the New Orleans levees probably did not cause nor exacerbate the flooding. The point is that the 5 million taken from New Orleans made no difference to Iraq, where the loss of 1 billion is hardly noticed by the Bush administration. Clearly the money bought us nothing in Iraq, but might well have been useful in NO. The great failure of the Bush presidency has been the consistant directing of resources where they are not needed and taking them from where they are needed.
