  • Fema Cut Phone Lines And Stopped Wal-mart 1 Day Before

    Yes that is correct, FEMA cut the communication lines in Jefferson Parish 1 day before the Hurricane hit and the sherriff had to reconnect them and put armed guards to prevent FEMA from trying to cut the lines again. Wal-Mart had food and water ready to take to the victims before the aftermath and FEMA stopped them before they reached Jefferson Parish.

    Why would FEMA do this

    Why stop supplies

    why why why

        My GOD! Now it all makes sense! It WAS a plot to get rid of those New Orleanians. Maybe they knew too much, maybe they discovered some diabolical plot and were ready to inform the world. Then that crazy Bastard BUSH orders up a hurricane to wipe them out and cover his tracks. Excellent work AMG ... Thanks for the lead.

        You really need to cite your information. You make some really far out comments and just expect it to be taken as truth.

            when you assume, you make a *** out of yourself!

            Let me give you just three quick examples.  We had Wal-Mart deliver three trucks of watertrailer trucks of water.  FEMA turned them back.  They said we didn't need them.  This was a week ago.  FEMA--we had 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel on a Coast Guard vessel docked in my parish.  The Coast Guard said, "Come get the fuel right away."  When we got there with our trucks, they got a word.  "FEMA says don't give you the fuel."  Yesterday--yesterday--FEMA comes in and cuts all of our emergency communication lines.  They cut them without notice.  Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in, he reconnects the line. He posts armed guards on our line and says, "No one is getting near these lines."  Sheriff Harry Lee said that if America--American government would have responded like Wal-Mart has responded, we wouldn't be in this crisis. 
            IM PRETTY SURE YOU WILL HAVE AN EXCUSE WHY FEMA DID IT!

              AMG:

              I have news for you. If FEMA wanted to cut communications lines to somewhere, they would be cut.

              A small-time Sheriff could not stop it. Not to mention, there is more than one way to cut communications to an area. The sheriff could not possibly guard all of them.

              This story is another conspiracy theory with people trying to get their fifteen minutes of fame.

              This story lost all credibility the minute it said the "Sheriff" restored the lines.

              Oh wait.. It never had credibility to begin with.

                    "FEMA cut communications one day before the storm hit", more or less what you said. Well, if FEMA was late and therefore not even there, how did they do that? Also, the way I read everything, that supposedly took place "yesterday", on maybe 9-3, after the storm. Could have happened, by accident, maybe but probably didn't happen.

                    Stopping Wal-Mart trucks. I would, rather than have them roll into the storm and become part of the problem. Anything on where they were sent, put on hold untill after the storm, and so on?

                    You put a neat spin on things AMG. Are you some small town reporter and part of the media, or just gullible?

Wal-Mart had food and water ready to take to the victims before the aftermath and FEMA stopped them before they reached Jefferson Parish.

                      Why would FEMA do this

                      Why stop supplies

                      why why why
                      OK, lets's dissect this. The transcript you're apparently using as the source of this complaint comes from Meet the Press dated Sunday, Sept. 4th, 2005. On that show, Tim Russert asks president of Jefferson Parish, Aaron Broussard, "Hold on. Hold on, sir. Shouldn't the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of New Orleans bear some responsibility? Couldn't they have been much more forceful, much more effective and much more organized in evacuating the area?"

                      Broussard responds, "Sir, they were told like me, every single day, "The cavalry's coming," on a federal level, "The cavalry's coming, the cavalry's coming, the cavalry's coming". I have just begun to hear the hoofs of the cavalry. The cavalry's still not here yet, but I've begun to hear the hoofs, and we're almost a week out.

                      Let me give you just three quick examples. We had Wal-Mart deliver three trucks of water, trailer trucks of water. FEMA turned them back. They said we didn't need them. This was a week ago. FEMA--we had 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel on a Coast Guard vessel docked in my parish. The Coast Guard said, "Come get the fuel right away." When we got there with our trucks, they got a word. "FEMA says don't give you the fuel." Yesterday--yesterday--FEMA comes in and cuts all of our emergency communication lines. They cut them without notice. Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in, he reconnects the line. He posts armed guards on our line and says, "No one is getting near these lines." Sheriff Harry Lee said that if America--American government would have responded like Wal-Mart has responded, we wouldn't be in this crisis".

                      Now Broussard claims that FEMA turned back water trucks a week earlier. Katrina made landfall on Monday, 8-29-05. A week earlier from the date of that statement was Sunday, 8-28-05. How was FEMA turning away water trucks the day before the storm made landfall, when the original complaint was that they (FEMA) didn't even arrive in New Orleans for at least 2-3 days after the flooding? The flooding only really began in earnest on late Monday night or Tuesday, 8-30-05 after the levees failed.

                      Broussard says that yesterday FEMA cut communication lines, not a week ago. At the time of the statement on 9-4-05, yesterday would have been Saturday, 9-3-05. Actually he never said phone lines, he said communication lines. That could mean many things other than physical lines. It could be just a disruption in communications by unintentional acts. Some FEMA guy may have run over a partially downed line and knocked out comms.

                      So your original post has errors. Communication lines were not cut a week earlier, if they were cut at all. Unsubstantiated comments from one man and not one other person in all of the reports and complaints from NO has ever mentioned this.

                      How could FEMA stop supplies from coming from anywhere a day or more before the storm, when everyone else complains that they weren't even there in the beginning?

                      Don't you think that if FEMA had cut some sort of lines and armed officers had to prevent them from doing it again, Geraldo, Greta van Sustern, and all the rest would be leading every newscast with that story?

                        This is a totally unconfirmed statement by a single individual who has a tremendous political price to pay if he was brought to bear for his failure to help prepare the citizens under his care. The thought that FEMA and the federal government intentionally let this happen is insane. The story is not rational. Previous posts have addressed this well.

                        There is clearly a need for improved emergency response planning in this nation. There was a portion of the transcript I find proves my point very well:


                        "MR. RUSSERT: But that's the point. Those who got out were people with SUVs and automobiles and air fares who could get out. Those who could not get out were the poor who rely on public buses to get out. Your Web site says that your department assumes primary responsibility for a national disaster. If you knew a hurricane 3 storm was coming, why weren't buses, trains, planes, cruise ships, trucks provided on Friday, Saturday, Sunday to evacuate people before the storm?

                        SEC'Y CHERTOFF: Tim, the way that emergency operations act under the law is the responsibility and the power, the authority, to order an evacuation rests with state and local officials. The federal government comes in and supports those officials. That's why Mike Brown got on TV on Saturday and he told people to start to get out of there."



                        How anyone can expect FEMA to stockpile food and water indefinitely in every city in the nation just in case a major catastrophe happens there is irrational. The question is actually why didn't Aaron Broussard and other local leaders prepare for such an event? It is THEIR responsibility to do that, not FEMA, not Congress, not George Bush. The local governments dropped the ball by not having adequate measures in place to provide relief on a local level until other aid could be brought in. We have also forgotten about the thousands of others in areas other than New Orleans who have lost just as much. How could anyone actually believe that FEMA singled out one city to fulfill some vast devious scheme??? Pathetic. This is so crazy I can't even discuss it anymore...
                        God made cops so firemen would have heroes.

                        You do not greet Death; you punch him in the throat repeatedly as he drags you away.

                          I noticed that too, but he has a thread about being DQ'd from a department application process. Isn't 55 a little old to be applying to a department? Plus, with these political views, I bet he was a riot if he made it to the oral board!
