Missouri Levee Exploded By U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers

~Editilla Specticulatas~ John Barry, author the book "Rising Tide", the definitive history of the Great Flood of 1927, states with the Corps of Engineers that this was designed into the system as a result of that deluge. Yet I believe that he isn't addressing all the "Flood Control" infrastructure built afterwards, on the upper MS, MO, AR rivers as well as all those reservoirs that helped flood Iowa and Wisconsin in 2008. Wasn't all that built After they designed this floodplain release valve in southeast MO? Does the Corps work then have a causal relationship to the problems we're having today? Can anyone help me out with this please? John Barry, what say you?
