Army Corps of Engineers corruption revealed by University of California professor.
The New York Times won’t touch this story. Neither will the Washington Post.
Here it is in a nutshell. The Army Corps of Engineers not only paid off a major engineering society to whitewash it’s own self-serving study, they actively interfered with and in some cases even threatened independent civil engineers who discovered less than flattering things about the Corps performance.
Bottom line: The destruction of New Orleans was the greatest engineering failure since Chernobyl and the details are being covered up.
Levees.org is he group that’s bringing this story to light. The New Orleans Times Picayune picked it up.
