The Associated Press: Ex-Mayor Nagin paints himself as hero in memoir


(New Orleans, Louisiana) Former Mayor Ray Nagin has written a memoir, "Katrina's Secrets: Storms After the Storm," which indicates that he was the hero during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Nagin said he was chosen by God to lead the city out of the storm. God also answered Nagin's prayers by sending a brief rain shower to cool the people packed for days into the Superdome after the hurricane, preventing a potential riot, he said.

Many of Nagin's claims are startling to those who stayed through the storm and were involved in the decisions he claims to have made.
Self-published by Nagin, the book reportedly received no independent fact-checking.

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Did God also tell him not to use the school busses to get the people out?
