Corps confession ignored by media

As I suspected, the admission by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that the flooding of New Orleans was the result of a design defect has been ignored by the national media.

The only notice captured by Google News includes: two English-language papers in India, the Post-Chronicle, an online newspaper site I can't figure out the physical location of and AL.Com, a site tied to the Birmingham (Greatest City in Alabam').News.

That's it. Imagine if the head of the CIA said, "I'm sorry, we really f---ed up and 9-11 was all our fault." And the only media that picked up the story outside of New York were two newspapers in India and the Birmingham News.

Just another reminder that We Are Not Ok.
