Seven year old who was raped and murdered at Superdome and Convention Center has left the building(s)

She was the fastest moving corpse in town (besides those floating in the flood waters). First she was raped and had her throat cut in the Superdome, and then, seeking a better deal, she got up and ran through the flood to get raped and murdered in the Convention Center where other men beat her attacker to death in revenge.

Later she turned up in the refrigerators at the Superdome again according to a National Guardsman keeping the curious out of the makeshift morgue there. Okay, this is all from my memory of reading news reports. If I've gotten anything wrong there, shoot me. It doesn't matter. It's not like when the aid was delayed to New Orleans because of unsubstantiated rumors of urban warfare. And it's not like the possibility that these unsubstatiated rumors of rape and murder might have kept people still in the city from evacuating while the waters were still rising. Did anyone die because of the bogus rumors that so enamored the right wing?

Multiple AP and other reporters started out-- in the first days after contact with the Superdome where made-- repeating what they acknowledged were unsubstantiated rumors about the poor little tyke and others murdered and raped in the two shelters and then gradually the unsubstantiated rumors substantiated themselves just because they had gotten so much press. Of course, with some racists that took about 2 minutes. One second for Rush Limbaugh and the Fox News crowd, I imagine.

But wait, a reporter from the Guardian, checked out the rumors, and found no proof available.

New Orleans police have been unable to confirm the tale of the raped child, or indeed any of the reports of rapes, in the Superdome and convention centre.

New Orleans police chief Eddie Compass said last night: "We don't have any substantiated rapes. We will investigate if the individuals come forward."

And while many claim they happened, no witnesses, survivors or survivors' relatives have come forward.

Nor has the source for the story of the murdered babies, or indeed their bodies, been found. And while the floor of the convention centre toilets were indeed covered in excrement, the Guardian found no corpses.
Murder and rape - fact or fiction?

But of course, the raped murdered little girl (along with the raped murdered 14 year old teen and the raped and murdered little boy who were mentioned fewer times) will live on in the minds of those who don't want to or can't afford to pour over news reports a couple hours a day to try to determine what is true in this world where truth appears to be whatever will help a political agenda or get a reporter a byline. And it will live even longer in the hearts of bigots willing to believe the worst about people who don't look like themselves.

The Guardian reporter also believes that the rumors spurred help to the Superdome, but other rumors of open urban warfare int the flooded city may have kept away the volunteers that might have helped the people still trapped in the flood until the laggard National Guard arrived.

The book, THE NEW PEARL HARBOR, exposes many relevant details which were cut from the 9-11 Commission's investigation by its gatekeeper, a former Bush campaign strategist. Details such as: 1)Neal Bush ran the security operation for the Twin Towers and the building beside them which also "imploded", though it had no physical reason to do so. 2)That third building was serendipitously evacuated prior to the first plane hitting the towers. 3)Neal Bush's security company had ordered a three day evacuation a few weeks prior to 9-11, which is ample time to plant explosives for controlled demolition. 4)The physical impossibilities of the numerous, massive concrete columns in the towers crumbling to dust from a jet fuel fire. 5) A jet airliner fit through the much smaller gash in the pentagon and left no wreckage. 6)The massive and unprecedented profit making with purchases of "puts" weeks earlier by well positioned, mysterious entities, on those airline and insurance corporation stocks devalued by 9-11. And many other censored points which indicate a conspiracy. After thorough consideration, there are several things which 9-11, the Iraq war, and the flooding of New Orleans'have in common. The massive loss of life. The massive destruction of property. The massive cost to tax payers and the terrible burden of debt for generations to come. But notably, each of these 3 debacles generates tremendous profit for Halliburton from NO-BID contracts awarded by George Bush. Each could have been prevented by a competent, honorable president and administration. However, to date, George Bush has refused to demand the $MILLIONS of our tax dollars already proven as pilfered by Halliburton. So, I ask myself, is all this calamity really due to mere incompetence?
