Who Are The 75,000 Body Bags For?By Lynn Landes / Opednews.com

Questions mount over Hurricane Katrina's death count. Estimates are now well below 10,000 with the death toll currently standing at 648 for Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida. So, why did the Bush Administration order 75,000 body bags?

Along that line, other things don’t add up. For instance, why did FEMA contact a crematorium in the local area; how could people identify their loved ones if only ashes remain? Why did FEMA rebuff efforts of volunteer morticians? Why did the feds try to ban reporters from covering the body recovery effort? Why have the feds employed mercenaries in New Orleans? Don't we have plenty of
volunteers, police and military in the U.S. to get any job done that needs doing?

What's really going on?

I don't know with any certainty, but here are some theories:

Maybe the Bush Administration doesn't want us to know how many people died because they just can't take the political heat for being completely incompetent. That's somewhat understandable. Maybe they ordered 75,000 body bags and hired Houston-based Blackwater mercenaries as more pork barrel projects. Nothing new there.

Or, maybe the feds want to hide bodies in an effort to grab land for their developer friends, or deny insurance claims for their friends in the insurance industry, as some people assert happened last year after Hurricane Charley in Florida. The Bush Administration can’t count on the police or military to carry out their dirty work, so they use private security firms. That's in keeping with the
Bush Administration's MO (modus operandi).

Or, maybe they don't want us to know exactly how some of these folks died. Maybe some New Orleans police did not abandon their stations. Maybe they were murdered while trying to protect their city. After all, Mayor Ray Nagin made public statements saying, "The CIA might take me out". What was that all about? There are reports that there was a shoot-out between New Orleans police and contractors. And rumors are rampant that the 17th Street levee was bombed to protect the wealthier parts of New Orleans. Something along those lines occurred in the Great Flood of 1927.

Or, maybe the body bags have little to do with Katrina. Maybe the bags are for us. On September 11th, the Bush Administration announced a new Pentagon guideline to allow pre-emptive nuclear strikes. Most people think that means an attack on Iran. However, some observers believe that some place in America (perhaps off the Carolinas' coast) will be the Bush Administration's first target.

Under the cover of Katrina, maybe the Bush Administration hopes no one will notice an order of 75,000 body bags.

Body bags arrive in New Orleans(Filed: 08/09/2005)

Up to 25,000 body bags have begun arriving in Louisiana as the Katrina flood waters begin to recede revealing new horrors. The official death toll is put at much lower, but it is feared thousands may have died in the hurricane and its aftermath.

Bob Johannessen, spokesman for the state Department of Health and Hospitals, said: "We don't know what to expect."

Dick Cheney, the US vice president, said the recovery effort was "very impressive" as he toured ravaged towns in Mississippi and Louisiana.

PALM BAY -- A mysterious ball of fire that soared through the sky about sunset two nights ago most likely was a fragment of an asteroid, a NASA scientist said Wednesday.
