Big Easy to Big Empty – The Untold Story of the Drowning of New Orleans

Unknown year History 770 Views 4 Comments
FEMA knew at eleven o’clock on Monday that the levees had breached, at 2 o’clock they flew over the 17th St. Canal and took video of the breaches, by midnight on Monday the White House knew, but none of us knew.

In this half-hour film, Greg Palast and his team travel to New Orleans to investigate what has happened since Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast last year.

On his visit, he discovers that the population of New Orleans is miniscule, the reconstruction sparse, suicide rates are climbing, and many have not, nor know how to, return to the city that care forgot.

He examines why residents had to leave, what really caused the flood and why they aren’t returning.

     Those who signed the legal documents to build that levee below standards, and their financial backers, should face criminal prosecution.
