9/11 and Katrina: The Fraud Connection


Today is turning into a day of ceremony for many. I just heard from one person covering the so-called “Freedom March” that just a few thousand people showed up — and most, while they support America’s actions in Iraq think that we have inadequate, incompetent leadership running the show. Bush has a 38% favorability rating. That says enough.
In any case, I will write more later about 9/11, my thoughts about it, and what I think our conference contributed.
However, for the time being I am looking into a story that is unfolding on massive fraud taking place in many FEMA contracted firms.
9/11 and the illogical but subsequent invasion of Iraq produced its own pervasive fraud and war-profiteeting.
More soon on this.
