Is N.O. the new Iraq?

Blanco wants 'exit plan' for forces:
"Blanco said she will not abandon the city, but stressed that 'I want to see a plan' from New Orleans officials for ending reliance on the state help. State Police and Guard personnel 'will be extended beyond December, but we will go month to month until I get a clear plan. . . . We want to see an exit plan,' she said."

When Nagin stands up, Blanco can stand down.

Great post, thanks. Don't know if you've seen these two pretty shocking videos from Iraq yet or not (kid chasing bottle of water, car getting crushed), but both star the US Military and put it in a very negative light. You have to wonder what these soldiers were thinking when videotaping this stuff...
