    I'm sure there were shenanigans well before 8 years ago.

    Wow, you're pretty good. Sounds like you knew who was at fault for the levee failure months before the engineers studying the failure did.

    Do you also blame BP for being exempted by the Obama administration from preparing the EIS??

    As far as I know, the Corps of Engineers uses private contractors to build levees. And, before you start with the insults, be sure you can prove me wrong.
