What the media isn't telling you (and you should be glad):
That Katrina was a weather weapon, wielded by the Yakuza, the Japanese mob. Or maybe Russia. Or China. Or India. Idaho weatherman extraordinaire Scott Stevens promotes this view, based on the belief that the Soviet Union developed energy weapons that can manipulate the weather, set off earthquakes, and mundane things like disable satellites and spacecraft. Stevens appeared on a podcast called the Enigma Report just before Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. He told host Kathleen Keating that Katrina's Florida landfall was a smoking gun:
SS: As I was doing my evening weathercast the Thursday prior, the evening of the 25th of August, I was reading the discussion out of the NHC where the eye of Katrina as she made landfall went over the top of the NHC. If that isn't putting ... let's just say you're putting the bead of the eye of the gun on the target. It was amazing. That should have been a big heads up. ...
KK: To me that was Yakuza all over. To me that was like their signature.
SS: Yakuz ... yeah. It was a very clear signal that you've been targeted; you've been targeted.
And a little later, he explained that the Yakuza was just one possible culprit: "It could be Yakuza, It could be the former Soviet Union with this. There was China involved. There is India now. There are so many nations that all they have to do is do their little part to keep this thing going." He also noted that all the planes leaving suspicious contrails over most of the United States had migrated to the region where the storm was active. Of course, neither he nor the host ever explain how storms like this happened before the onset of supersecret Soviet technology.
Now here's the thing if you spend the time to listen to this guy's Yakuza/energy weapons claptrap: You'll find much of what he says thoughtful and perhaps agree with it. For instance, how the destruction of wetlands in Louisiana has contributed to New Orleans' vulnerability to catastrophic flooding; or how irresponsible it is for our government to commit hundreds of billions to the Iraq war. And he's reasonably well informed about the economy and the Gulf region's place in it.
Then he caps everything off by noting that our side failed to do anything to fight the enemy hurricane warriors, whoever they are, and ends by saying, "The great sorting has begun." Meaning the apocalypse is here, I guess.
