Gulf Oil Disaster
Fact vs Fiction
Hypocrisy at the highest levels
Here are some exerpts from Part 1 of a multi part series designed to present the truth and background surrounding the Gulf Oil Crisis that is being mostly blamed on BP. BP must, of course, assume part of the responsibility for this catastrophe, but there is plenty of blame to spread. We have a government in place to protect the safety and interests of the American public. As always, problems can always be traced to the top and not just the top of BP. Obama, as occupant of the White House, has control over a cabinet. One Obama controls is the US Department of the Interior, headed by Ken Salazar.

“Obama Administration Announces Comprehensive Strategy for Energy Security”
“As part of the Administration’s comprehensive energy strategy President Barack Obama and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today announced more details of the Obama Administration’s efforts to strengthen our energy security. President Obama and Secretary Salazar announced that the Administration will expand oil and gas development and exploration on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) to enhance our nation’s energy independence while protecting fisheries, tourism, and places off U.S. coasts that are not appropriate for development.”
“Over the last year, under the leadership of Secretary Salazar, the Administration has worked to reevaluate previous decisions in an effort to set oil and gas drilling policies on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) that will help reduce our dependence on foreign oil, create jobs, and take environmental risks and responsibilities into account.”
“More Domestic Production – Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing: The Administration’s strategy calls for developing oil and gas resources in new areas, such as the Eastern Gulf of Mexico; increasing oil and gas exploration in frontier areas, such as parts of the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans”
“From the U.S. Department of the Interior News Release March 31, 2010.
“The Obama Administration’s strategy calls for expanded development and production throughout the Gulf of Mexico, including resource-rich areas of the Eastern Gulf of Mexico that are currently under Congressional moratorium and closed to development.
“The plan we are proposing calls for 4 more lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico by 2012 and, in the years beyond, would open up two-thirds of the oil and gas resources in the Eastern Gulf while protecting Florida’s coast and critical military training areas,” said Salazar. “Our efforts to strategically open new areas in the Eastern Gulf would represent the largest expansion of our nation’s available offshore oil and gas supplies in three decades.””
