    Crude Politics; The drilling experts speak out on the Obama deepwater moratorium.

    Before the Obama Administration sweeps under the carpet the controversy over the drilling experts it falsely used to justify its moratorium, the incident bears another look. Not least because it underlines the purely political nature of a drilling ban that now threatens the Gulf Coast economy and drilling safety.

    In a scathing document, eight of the "experts" the Administration listed in its report said their names had been "used" to "justify" a "political decision." The draft they reviewed had not included a six-month drilling moratorium. The Administration added that provision only after it had secured sign-off. In their document, the eight forcefully rejected a moratorium, which they argued could prove more economically devastating than the oil spill itself and "counterproductive" to "safety."

    And we are to trust these people with 20 Billion of BP's money headed for the Mississippi Delta?
    They cannot even come square with recommendations of experts.

    Truly sick puppies.

    What? The, "experts", that **** nuts constantly referred to, didn't say anything about a shut down of offshore drilling?

    Correct.

    It recommended a six-month ban on new deepwater permits. Yet Benton Baugh, president of Radoil, said that in at least two separate hour-and-a-half phone calls among Interior and the experts, there was no discussion of a moratorium on existing drilling. "Because if anybody had [made that suggestion], we'd have said 'that's craziness.'"
    The experts signed a document, with nothing related to the moratorium in the document they signed!!!.
    Only after, when they had signed, did the Obama administration add the text.

    They would not have signed such a document. They say the moratorium could do even greater damage than the spill.

    This forgery seems to be the basis for the moratorium.

    the eight forcefully rejected a moratorium, which they argued could prove more economically devastating than the oil spill itself and "counterproductive" to "safety."
    And people wonder of BP was involved in a shakedown?

    When will we have a criminal investigation of this?
    Falsifying documents that effect the lives of those in the region, and hundreds of millions if not billions in commerce?

    Why am I not surprised at this? From the day I heard about the moratorium, it smelled like bull and now I see I was right.

    It's all about the agenda. That's why Obama drug his ass to respond to the slick. He had to have a disaster to boost his green agenda.

    Just imagine if the slick had been contained within a few days and not allowed to spread farther than a few mile radius from the well. It would have been a feather in the oil industries cap and Obama couldn't allow that to happen.

    The Libbos have been looking for an excuse to takeover the oil and gas industry for years. Now they got it.

    I still can't get over how the timing of this blowout worked soooo well for Obama.

    This seems like a very inexperienced move. Did they really believe that these experts would continue to be thrown under the rug?

    I'm not saying it wasn't accidental, or to put it a better way, I'm not saying that it was some sorta sabotage.

    I'm only pointing how the incredible convenient this blowout is for Obama, all things considered. No one can argue with that fact.
