**YourDailyChum.com Exclusive**Pat Robertson claims George Bush blew up Iowa levees

June 22, 2008

Evangelical minister Pat Robertson has claimed sources have told him there was an explosion at the levee in Des Moines immediately before the levee was breached and flooded the city.

Robertson, founder of the Christian network, The 700 Club, said, “I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 15 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the Irish part of town and keep the French part dry.”

Tensions were raised further during a live television broadcast Friday night to raise money for the rebuilding process in Iowa. Film star Will Smith was appearing in a segment with outspoken Irish musician Bono, lead singer of the band U2. Bono stopped reading from the teleprompter and issued a rambling statement about his how he is donating his own money to relief efforts, particularly to provide colored glasses to everyone in the city. While Will Smith remained silent and looked a bit confused, Bono concluded by saying, “George Bush doesn’t care about Irish people.”
