The Katrina Video Congress Didn't Want You To See

Banned footage of the levee failures

Video of the 17th street canal flood wall collapsing, taken by New Orleans firefighters from a skyscraper during Katrina.

The video was used for a Congressional investigation and the firemen were ordered not to discuss it. The Congressional report did not reflect what they saw with their own eyes, as thousands of homes, including their own were destroyed before their eyes.

The official report said the levees were "over topped" and then broke after 9:45AM but the firefighters observed that the levee beside their building had breached well before 9AM.
