The Real Oil "Spill" Magnitude and the OBAMA/BP Cover-Up
oilprice.com ^ | May 07, 2010 | Wayne Madsen

Posted on 05/20/2010 10:43:08 AM PDT by peachykeene

WMR has been informed by sources in the US Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Florida Department of Environmental Protection that the Obama White House and British Petroleum (BP), which pumped $71,000 into Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign -- more than John McCain or Hillary Clinton, are covering up the magnitude of the volcanic-level oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and working together to limit BP's liability for damage caused by what can be called a "mega-disaster." Plans by BP to sink a 4-story containment dome over the oil gushing from a gaping chasm one kilometer below the surface of the Gulf, where the oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded and killed 11 workers on April 20, and reports that one of the leaks has been contained is pure public relations disinformation designed to avoid panic and demands for greater action by the Obama administration, according to FEMA and Corps of Engineers sources.

What BS!

Of the 3 leaks one has been completely shut with a valve added to the drill pipe.

Of the remaining 2, 85% was flowing out the end of the riser. Most of that has now been captured and drawn up via the insertion tool.

Wayne Madsen is a conspiracy theory kook.

Like most multinational corporations, BP greases the palms on both sides of the aisle. But over the years they've bought more GOP sockpuppets than Rats.

I guess the pictures of that dome being lowered into the Gulf were just photoshops. /sarcasm

It doesn’t matter who BP greased over the years. It matters if they person BP greased actually did something for the money. And it looks like Obama is paying his money back in spades. (No racial slurs intended, seriously).

“Until they figure a way to pin it on Bush.”

Like playing the race card, it’s getting to the point where that dog won’t hunt. As the number of people who will buy that BS gets smaller and smaller, the Tea Parties will only get bigger and bigger.

The dome didn’t work. Gas Hydrates kept forming due to temp and pressure. But the drill pipe valve held and the insertion tube is working well.

No, this was posted on May 7th, prior to the cofferdam containment vessel being put in place.

I believe he was referencing the valve that was placed on the drill pipe that was the first leak controlled.

Is it a conspiracy “theory” if it’s true?
