The Obama Administration blocked scientist that were giving estimates on the size, scale and damage estimates of the Gulf Spill.
WASHINGTON ““ The Obama administration blocked efforts by government scientists to tell the public just how bad the Gulf oil spill could become and committed other missteps that raised questions about its competence and candor during the crisis, according to a commission appointed by the president to investigate the disaster.
Among other things, the report says, the administration made erroneous early estimates of the spill’s size, and President Barack Obama’s senior energy adviser went on national TV and mischaracterized a government analysis by saying it showed most of the oil was “gone.” The analysis actually said it could still be there.
This of course, is not accidental, nor could it be. It was deliberate, malicious and intentional. This blog and zillions of other sites showed just how bad the Gulf disaster was, despite the constant claims from government that the oil was “gone”.
For the first time, the documents “” which are preliminary findings by the panel’s staff “” show that the White House was directly involved in controlling the message as it struggled to convey that it, not BP, was in charge of responding to what eventually became the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
We all know where our bread is buttered, and the US government is no different. Big Oil has ALWAYS had it’s foot on the throats of the citizenry all over the world, and has a massive amount of influence on energy policies and politics in Washington.
