According to two surviving crew members of the Deepwater Horizon, oil workers from the rig were held in seclusion on the open water for up to two days after the April 20 explosion, while attorneys attempted to convince them to sign legal documents stating that they were unharmed by the incident. The men claim that they were forbidden from having any contact with concerned loved ones during that time, and were told they would not be able to go home until they signed the documents they were presented with.
Unbelievable! And a double whammy on Americans if they are awake -- a corporation AND an oil drilling company. Spinning from the moment the disaster hit, and they haven't stopped.
In refusing to rely on BP's data on the toxicity of dispersants, Jackson said, "I'd rather have my own scientists do their own analysis."
Finally! The Obama administration has been so lame as to let the samples taken from the ocean to be analyzed for the extent of the oil in the sea, be sent to a facility that, um, shall we say, works for BP! At the time the original order went out, I believe only one city manager said he was sending it to his own lab and not BPs. Good for him. And it's taken the Obama administration what, over a month now, to actually start throwing temper tantrums because of the slow actions on the part of BP.
Actually, it seems more like Congress is waking up. Obama is still sleepwalking through this catastrophe.
