No, It Is Not Silt Or Mud Fouling the Gulf (Again)--It's Oil!

The source of the new oil slicks recently found in the Gulf has been tracked to its source--Anglo Suisse Offshore Partners and an "abandoned well." Whoever schemed up the initial nonsensical notion that it was "mud from dredging" and much ado about nothing should be fired immediately.

The mainstream media finally woke up and covered this important story on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. The clip ran before the Coast Guard had their culprit:


The company claimed it had only leaked "5 gallons of oil" but the Coast Guard found them at the site of the well trying to cap it with a remote controlled submarine. They hadn't bothered to mention they were doing the operation until they were found out.

Until oil began showing up in the Gulf and washing up on shorelines.

But they were caught black-handed and apparently not at all in control of what they were attempting to keep quiet. 

The  newspaper earlier reported that state officials had fingered work being done to the Anglo-Suisse's non-producing oil well near Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River as the likely source, calling it a "well capping out of control."
Rocky Kistner, who broke the story, along with the New Orleans press, has been following it closely and has more here.

A different source of oil has been spotted near the Chanduleur barrier islands described as "black streaky plumes over a 20 mile stretch" by groups of environmentalists, scientists and engineers who flew over the area and reported back to the Times-Picayune.

Now, let's think about this for a moment and decide how much we really should believe about the safety of the seafood and even swimming in the Gulf, from the talking state heads who are trying so hard to convince us "everything is clean, safe and beautiful."

Do you honestly believe them?

    Has this been covered in any Alabama newspaper yet? This should be front-page news. Off-shore drilling is a dangerous way to get oil, too dangerous, me thinks.

  3. The desperation to bow to corporate oil and gas at the risk of public health is nauseating to me.
    This is really a sad state of affairs and will destroy the fishing industry for good I fear.

  4. No takers here.

    It's so disgusting how we just get new liars in office instead of new or renewed hope. Surely one day we'll have an end to all this nonsense.

    I can understand a governor behaving responsibly so there is not civil unrest or panic, but this is ridiculous.

    He deserves this revealing of the new oil slick news story. He should learn as qucikly as possible to keep his yap shut, check facts or hire some real people who know how to work and get rid of all those over-paid suits with the double incomes.

    See what you get when you hire the 'very' best?

    SOS.

  5. Governor Boobly even said the beach near his Fort Morgan getaway castle was cleaner than it had been in "10-15 years, just beautiful."
    Funny, I read that tar balls were in that are as recently as one month before he made that claim. There are a few videos on YouTube about what Fort Morgan really looks like, out of sight of the richy area.
    This is all a big damn lie!
