Gulf Oil Crisis, Was the oil leak intentional?, Too many coincidences?

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”

William Shakespeare

I am not a rocket scientist and I am not dull witted.

I am paying attention.

I, as most of you who are paying attention, have been discussing the sequence of events leading up to the Gulf Oil Crisis. In the ongoing series of articles at Citizen News, it is clear that Obama, Ken Salazar, the Interior Department, Minerals Management Services and a host of other government entities own a large part of the blame for the giant oil spill. When Alex Jones came out with this video, none of us were surprised.

“The Guilty dog barks the loudest.”

For the sheep following mainstream media coverage of the Gulf Oil Crisis, the reality is that BP is a greedy oil company and deserves all the blame for this crisis. And of course Obama is innocent and he is fighting the big corporations and he is going to kick some ass.

BP should be held accountable for their mistakes. However, Obama, the US Government, the Interior Department and  Minerals Management Service, MMS, certainly share a large part of the blame. They encouraged drilling in the Gulf and were about to open up areas for drilling twice as deep as the current crisis depth.

Hypocrisy at the highest levels

From the Office of the White House Press Secretary March 31, 2010.

“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.”

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.

Gulf Oil Disaster

Fact vs Fiction

Part 2

Hypocrisy at the highest levels

On April 1, 2010 we learned the following from Ken Salazar and the US Interior Department.

“NEW ORLEANS, LA – Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today announced that the next federal oil and gas lease sale in the Gulf of Mexico will occur in New Orleans on August 18, 2010. The Secretary made the Western Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 215 announcement during a tour of Superior Energy Services.”

“The available blocks in Sale 215 are located from 9 to about 250 miles offshore in water depths of 16 to more than 10,975 feet (5 to 3,346 meters). The Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) estimates the proposed lease sale could result in the production of 242 to 423 million barrels of oil and 1.64 to 2.64 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.”

“The available blocks in Sale 215 are located from 9 to about 250 miles offshore in water depths of 16 to more than 10,975 feet”

10, 975 feet is twice the depth of the current drilling disaster.
