BP & The U.S. Govt. Held Info Back From Each Other As Oil Poured Into Gulf

It’s like a scene on some crime show where the crook gets away because the local cops and the FBI aren’t telling each other everything. Except this wasn’t some hour-long piece of TV fluff; it was a huge environmental disaster that unleashed untold amounts of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

The Houston Chronicle’s FuelFix blog has a revealing story about recent closed-door testimony to the Justice Dept. by Marcia McNutt, head of the U.S. Geological Survey, regarding deception and secret-keeping on the part of BP and the U.S. government following the 2010 explosion and oil spill in the gulf.

People can't get over anything anymore.Obama is president(much to my dismay)and the gulf is healthy once more.Negativity seems to rule.
