Hugh Hewitt has posted an communique from the ship’s commander of the USS Iwo Jima and their activities in New Orleans. Very interesting reading.
Wish there was more info available. If anyone knows more about this ship’s day to day operations, please let me know.

UPDATE: the photos mentioned below were taken down after a day or so, however, they are back up at a new site here. Enjoy!
Thanks to a chance encounter with Rightwingsparkle I found a wonderful collection of photos from someone who lived in New Orleans. He offers photos of the city before the hurricane, when the “eye” passed over and after Katrina passed by. Everything looked fine at that point.
Then the flood water came. And things turned ugly. Very interesting.

There is much talk about “who” is to blame for the hurricane in New Orleans. The MSM is coming down hard on President Bush. There is a lot of good information coming forth throughout the blogosphere.
Here are some of my thoughts;
The storm known as Katrina is 100% responsible for the destruction to property and loss of life.
The Mayor of New Orleans and the other local officials compounded the situation by a factor of 65%.
The governor and state officials contributed an additional 25% to the misery index.
Federal officials added 10% to this mix. (Low for most anything the federal government is involved with.)
I don't think the death toll will be in the 10,000's. Maybe about 300 in New Orleans.
We’ll see how the blame shakes out in the weeks ahead.

There are many opportunities available if you wish to donate to help those suffering from Hurricane Katrina.
Here is my recommendation for your consideration:
Soldier's Angels and Mathew and Frankie Mayo, founders of Operation AC have established a relief fund to help our soldiers and their families cope with and recover from this devastation. Your donation will help these families obtain essential
personal items, temporary shelter and any other needs that can be met. Soldier's Angels will also work to provide information to the soldiers concerning their families whereabouts and needs. Now is the time to help protect those who have given up so much to protect us.
The homes and lives of an untold number of our friends and families have been decimated. Included in the ranks of victims are the family members of our soldier's serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Many of these soldiers will be returning home in the next few weeks to find that their families have been displaced and their homes and businesses destroyed.
If you can help, please do so.
Visit this Soldiers’ Angel page for more information on Operation Katrina Soldiers Relief Fund.
For monetary donations
please mail a check or money order made out to
Soldiers' Angels to:
Soldier's Angels Foundation
Operation Katrina Relief
1792 East Washington Blvd.
Pasadena, California 91104
Thank you for your help.
100 % of these funds donated will go to this project, paypal fees will be paid by Soldiers' Angels along with a 1000.00 donation as their part in the relief effort
Soldiers' Angels wishes to offer its heart and prayers to all involved.
Update: Visit Glenn at Instapundit for a complete list of places to donate.
