Katrina's Mayor Nagin ordered to get injections, feared CIA poisoning plot 25 Jun 2011 Ray Nagin's memoir, "Katrina's Secrets: Storms After the Storm," was released Wednesday. Among the more shocking revelations is the former New Orleans Mayor's account of the evening of Aug. 30, 2005. Nagin worried about becoming a target of sinister forces after his famous Sept. 1, 2005, rant on WWL-AM. "I thought to myself, 'I'm a dead man,'" he writes. "I started wondering if during the night I would be visited by specially trained CIA agents. Could they secretly shoot me with a miniature, slow-acting poison dart?" On the Monday after the storm, Nagin visited the USS Iwo Jima, an amphibious assault ship that served as a base of federal operations. There, he was escorted to an infirmary where two medical staffers "had orders to examine me and give me shots. I was still a little paranoid and again started imagining a secret CIA plot where in six months I would be gone," he writes. "After thinking for a minute, I said to them, 'Okay, you can give me shots, but I want you to do the same for my two security guys.'"
