Bobby Jindal’s letter to Robert Gates reveals plans for National Guard to evacuate coastal areas

June 19, 2010

A letter sent from Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to Defense Secretary Robert Gates and posted on the governor’s website reveals that the National Guard is preparing to evacuate the communities along the Gulf coast impacted by the oil leak. The letter reads: “Currently, our Soldiers and Airmen are staging for and are engaged in the planning of the effort to evacuate and provide security and clean up for the coastal communities expected to be impacted by the oil spill… I believe these National Guard operations are necessary and appropriate to protect this region of our nation from a significant national event with potential catastrophic loss of natural resources.” This threatens to become a repeat of some of the worst human rights abuses that occurred during Hurricane Katrina, when the National Guard forced thousands to evacuate at gunpoint, confiscating their weapons and insisting that they abandon their pets to starvation, and their property to looters. Hopefully that will not occur in this instance.
