Our group is one of the dissenting voices that the Corps of Engineers attempted, unsuccessfully, to steamroll.
I also wish to add that thirty-two days after the BP oil spill, President Obama signed an executive order for a bipartisan national commission to investigate the disaster to make certain it never happens again. There was a similar immediate commission for the 9/11 terrorist attack master-minded by Osama Bin Laden.
But after five and a half years, there is still no comparable investigation, ordered by Congress or the White House, of the levee protection failures that drowned metro New Orleans and killed over 1,500 people.
