Some Other-Than-Bush Blame

This can't be blamed on George W. Bush or Kathleen Blanco or Ray Nagin. However, that something like this can still happen in the United States of America in the 21st century is profoundly disturbing.

To underscore two major facts: 1) A New Orleans police officer first told those fleeing that they couldn't stay in his command center -- and then, according to an eyewitness, swore that buses were waiting for them on the other side of a bridge: "He looked all of us in the eye and said, 'I swear to you, there are buses waiting across the bridge.'" 2) Suburban cops blocked individuals on foot from crossing a bridge to potential safety.

Whatever broad investigation occurs, neither the involved New Orleans cops nor their suburban comrades should keep their badges.
