Bush's Fault-- New Orleans Declined Offer To Fill Empty Train With Hundreds of Evacuees

But it won't be widely reported by the MSM, as it contradicts the narrative of their faith-based journalism:

In fact, while the last regularly scheduled train out of town had left a few hours earlier, Amtrak had decided to run a "dead-head" train that evening to move equipment out of the city. It was headed for high ground in Macomb, Miss., and it had room for several hundred passengers. "We offered the city the opportunity to take evacuees out of harm's way," said Amtrak spokesman Cliff Black. "The city declined."

So the ghost train left New Orleans at 8:30 p.m., with no passengers on board.

Oh wait-- Amtrak is a federally subsized corporation. It had the duty to order Nagin to put his citizens on the train.
