  •  An email was given (none)
    to Chertoff's office at 1:30pm Monday saying that a levee had been breached.

    Can we wait even a SECOND longer? SEE GRAPHIC...

    •  I'm pretty clear... (none)
      ...on the timeline. Afterall, I was in the area when all this occurred.

      What I mean is that Chertoff is probably lieing. And that he doesn't know what he's talking about. 80% of the flooding had not occurred by the time he stated. Lake Ponchartrain had long before started to drain into NOLA by the time he stated. Folks who are conversant in the issues would be able to state this more accurately.

      •  This is why you don't have intelligence (4.00)
        in with emergency functions.

        Intelligence's job is to NOT tell people things, unless you're FORCED to do so. Emergency's job is TO tell people things, and FAST.

        THIS is the big disconnect, and why DHS is total joke.
