The retired Army lieutenant general and Louisiana native is best known for rescuing what had been a lackluster federal response to the 2005 story
NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — A retired Louisiana U.S. Army General who was hand picked by the federal government to lead the post-Katrina recovery effort and stabilize the city in the chaotic days that followed the Hurricane in 2005 has now been tapped by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to investigate the security at the U.S. Capitol following the insurrection.
Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré was one of the most visible faces in the Katrina aftermath and is credited with helping to stabilize security in the city using National Guard troops to patrol the streets for weeks.
