What really happened with Hurricane Katrina?

So many questions haven't been answered.
It's been 11 years since Hurricane Katrina hit land. No one ever talks about it, but it's one of the major reasons Bush's popularity went south. 1,836 people died and one of the most beautiful and culturally significant cities in America was plunged into ruin. I honestly believe it was a case of ethnic cleansing. People still don't understand the power of HAARP and how it can be used for weather control  link to portland.indymedia.org . At any rate, one year after the storm:

- Less than half of the city's pre-storm population had returned
- 60 percent of homes lacked electricity
- Six out of nine hospitals remained closed
- Rental rates were up 40 percent

Why were food, water, and supplies shipped back? Destroyed in some cases? Communication lines cut?

The response to Hurricane Katrina was a national outrage. If it can happen in New Orleans, a similar catastrophe can happen anywhere in the United States. We can't afford to forget it.
