Why did FEMA cut the emergency phone lines in Jefferson?

Aaraon Broussard said on Meet the Press on Sunday, Sept. 4 that FEMA had cut the emergency phone lines in Jefferson Parish, and that the sheriff, Harry Lee, had to post armed guards to protect them.

I had heard this earlier as a rumor, but only today found Mr. Broussard's comment here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9179790

Could it be that FEMA and the federal government found Mr. Broussard's remarks a bit too piquant for their taste, especially his vocal criticism of the massive failure of the federal government to respond to the disaster?
