Magic Bullet Theory Suggests Levee was Blown
In a recent ABC news report, correspondent David Muir interviewed New Orleans' Ninth Ward resident, Joe Edwards, Jr. Edwards swears that the breached levee was purposely blown in an effort to save the richer New Orleans areas, such as the Garden District and the French Quarter. Is this true? Watch the video footage and decide for yourself.
Personally, I could feasibly see how this may have happened, but there is also the high probability that people are simply grasping at any offered explanation for the disaster. I'd like to think this story is fabricated in an attempt to make sense of what has happened; people will do this kind of thing, when their consciousness can't cope with the overwhelming. But who knows for sure, and we probably never will. Louis Farrakhan claims that it's true, but I suppose that's to be expected, and everyone knows how "rational" he can be (sit down, my son, and let papa explain something called sarcasm).
But, the fact remains that during the last major flood to hit New Orleans, back in 1927, a decision was made at the height of that flood to dynamite the levees in places that would spare New Orleans, yet destroy St. Bernard's Parish. This is exactly what seems to have happened now.
I don't know. I suppose my guess is as good as any other magic bullet theory.
