Levees maybe substandard?

Well now.  It seems the levees broke at less than their claimed design strength.  Possible reasons for that are incorrect engineering/fabrication, unforseen forces in the storm surge higher than the design strength, or CORRUPTION.  As in cheatin' contractors putting inferior materials and/or workmanship on the job.

Given that we are talking about New Orleans, corruption seems the best bet.  There's a contractor somewhere sweating bullets right about now, bet you a dollar.
