  •  Great Article with some specifics (none)
    Editor and Publisher has a great article on their website describing the reporting the Times-Picayune has done over the past few years on budget cuts for CoE projects for flood-control in New Orleans. These two paragraphs jumped out at me:
    At least nine articles in the Times-Picayune from 2004 and 2005 specifically cite the cost of Iraq as a reason for the lack of hurricane- and flood-control dollars.

    The 2004 hurricane season was the worst in decades. In spite of that, the federal government came back this spring with the steepest reduction in hurricane and flood-control funding for New Orleans in history.
