While the New Orleans region was still drying out after the federal levees failed in 2005, the Corps of Engineers awarded an elite engineering group a large grant to conduct what was basically a PR show to repair the Corps’ damaged reputation.
The grant steered money to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to present dozens of powerpoints nationwide and abroad apparently designed to mislead the American public on what caused the flooding during Katrina.
(Levees.org discovered the details about the multi million grant in a request under FOIA.)
The information presented here is not new, but most of the footage is new.
Not wishing to present anything ‘out of context’ we have also uploaded a 15-minute segment – the longest that YouTube allows – of the full 80-minute presentation and you can see even more of the travesty for yourself.
