As we mark the 10-year anniversary that Hurricane Katrina, a destructive Category 5 hurricane made landfall in the city of New Orleans, President Barack Obama have made his comments and payed his respects to the city. More on those in a minute. Depending on which side of the political spectrum you are on will determine what narrative you are willing to believe on what happened in New Orleans ten years ago.
Former FEMA Director, Michael Brown has since come forward in a piece on Politico. He claims his life would have been different had he decided to leave FEMA in 2005, but after the successful responses of Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne in Florida, he was persuaded to stay on-a fateful decision indeed that left him holding the bag for the atrocities and corruption that followed in Katrina’s aftermath.
