The Army Corps agrees in an initial study that the New Orleans (levee) system was probably overtaxed.

In a stunning burst of intellectual prowess and deduction, Col. Fred "Bulldozer" McCarthy said preliminary data indicated the levees failed because "there was too much water", but that complete confirmation of this would require a comprehensive study costing ten million dollars and that if "stupid, poor people" had only lived on higher ground, "none of this would have happened." The solution he said, was to "bulldoze the city into submission, that it was necessary to destroy the city to save it."
