Captain May's "Battle of New Orleans" states: "The fact that the National Guard now bars entry (by journalists) to the very places where people last week were barred from LEAVING (The Convention Center and Superdome) is a kind of perverse and perfectly backward postscript to this awful chapter in American history."
Ghost Troop Operation BONO (Battle of New Orleans). [Editor's Note: There were reports that agents blew holes in levees to precipitate the flooding, and that a number of New Orleans policemen died in a shootout to try to stop them. According to Capt May, the flood benefited business interests seeking to evict blacks out of prime New Orleans real estate. The original reports of over 10,000 dead, which were later reduced by controlled media to around 1,000 dead, were probably right the first time. Especially ominous, New Orleans became a very bad precedent and training ground for the use of regular soldiers and private mercenaries (Blackwater Inc) to suppress civilians, invade their homes at will, and arbitrarily confiscate their firearms, all in violation of posse comitatus, the Second Amendment, and other rights.
