"We took this convention center down" 


Read about the National Guard's 9/3/05 "clear and hold operation" on the New Orleans convention center.

According to the presiding officer, it was a great success--the territory was conquered without shots being fired. "Undesirable" elements were pacified, and the scope of military authority was successfully expanded.

Remarkably, the enemy showed a great willingness to "cooperate" with the occupiers after Guard authority was forcefully established.

When you read this, you'll see that there is no irony in the above that is not present--unconsciously--in the language of this demented military official as he spoke before the press two weeks ago.
