Sanpete writes, "few authorities have examined the evidence." Actually, there are at least 13 major studies.

1) IPET (USACE), 2) ASCE (oversight of IPET paid by USACE), 3) National Research Council (oversight of ASCE and IPET by DOD), 4) National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), 5) ILIT (paid by NSF and UCal), 6) Team Louisiana (paid by LA Dept of Trans), 7) Decision Chronology by Woolley/Shabman, 8) Risk Management Solutions (insurance industry), 9) Congress - House Study, 10) Congress - Senate Study, 11) White House Study, 13) Center for Progressive Reform ILIT report, 14) MRGO Plaintiffs studies, 15) MRGO Defense studies.

There's also the Apariq report (by an independent engineering firm) on a Corps whistleblower's allegations validated by the Office of Special Counsel in the Justice Dept). And studies are still ongoing, and will be released in the next 18 months.
