Louis Farrakhan : not an engineer.

Minister Louis Farrakhan (who?) has pulled the race card today with this statement at a press conference about the flooding in New Orleans: "I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry".

Alternatively, tens of thousands of litres of water per second flowing through a breech would cause scour directly in its path, just like you'd find at the bottom of a waterfall. That could easily dig a 25ft crater. But physics isn't contraversial enough for someone wanting to play the race card. No, better to indicate that someone was organised enough to get enough explosive to make a tiny crater on the wrong side of the levee, which went unnoticed by all the people on and around the levee, and detonated with just enough force to break the levee.

What an idiot.
