Total Information Analysis | August 31 2005
8:07 pm CDT -- New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has given a remarkable interview to WWL TV, broadcast on wwltv.com. Nagin said that the National Guard's Blackhawk helicopter carrying the sandbags to plug the hole in the levee on 17th St. Canal was diverted to rescue misssions.
Nagin said he called the governor, and that he and other state and local officials are unsuccesfully trying to get through to the White House to ask if the people in Washington know what they're doing.
The White House switchboard is 202-456-1414.
To ask the La. Air National Guard to ignore Bush's treasonous orders and plug the hole, call (504) 271-6262 .
