on March 31, 2010 Obama ended a ban on drilling for oil along the US Atlantic coast and Alaska.

"President Obama announced the end of a decades-old ban on oil and gas drilling along much of the U.S. Atlantic coast and northern Alaska on Wednesday, as part of an effort to reduce foreign imports and win support for an energy and climate bill. "


On April 20, 2010 an oil rig exploded off of the coast of Louisiana. After the explosion, it was reported that no oil was leaking from the damaged rig.

"There is no crude oil spilling from the sunken oil rig off the Louisiana coast, an official told "Good Morning America" today, easing fears of a massive environmental disaster. "We've been able to determine there is nothing emanating from the well-head," "


On April 22, Earth day, the oil rig sank and now 5,000 barrels of oil a day are spilling into the ocean. since this event a new ban on drilling is in effect.

"The US administration has banned oil drilling in new areas of the US coast while the cause of the oil spill off Louisiana is investigated. White House adviser David Axelrod told ABC TV it wanted to know exactly what led to last week's explosion on the BP-operated rig in the Gulf of Mexico. As many as 5,000 barrels of oil a day are thought to be spilling into the water, threatening US coastal areas".


Obama has now sent swat teams to the area.

""While BP is ultimately responsible for assuming the cost of the cleanup operations, my administration will continue to use every single available resource at our disposal, including potentially the Department of Defense to address the incident," Obama said at the White House.

He has ordered Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to visit the site Friday. He also said the Interior Department is sending SWAT teams to the Gulf to inspect all platforms and rigs.

"We are being very aggressive, and we are prepared for the worst case," Coast Guard Rear Adm. Sally Brice O'Hare told reporters at an earlier news conference in Washington. "


it seems very likely to me that this event is no accident, that there was a planned explosion on this rig to make certain that a ban on drilling would continue. the explosion occurring in conjunction with earth day would make this event have the strongest impact for those who see domestic oil drilling as an attack on the earth. the most interesting part perhaps is the presence of swat teams. of all agencies or officials to send to such a thing as an oil spill, how much does it make sense that swat teams were what was chosen? are there dangerous criminals hiding near the oil rig? could it be possible that what is being seen here is the beginning of a plan for government to seize control of oil companies as they did banks and health care?

Lawyers: Rig workers asked to sign statements
By GARANCE BURKE and CURT ANDERSON, Associated Press Writers
Tuesday, May 11, 2010
(05-11) 10:50 PDT , (AP) --
Workers aboard an exploding offshore drilling platform were told to sign statements denying they were hurt or witnessed the blast that rocked the rig, killed 11 and spewed millions of gallons of oil into the ocean, their attorneys said Tuesday.
Survivors floated for hours in life boats in the Gulf of Mexico following the disaster on the Deepwater Horizon, and were greeted by company officials onshore asking them to sign statements that they had no "first hand or personal knowledge" of the incident, attorneys said.
"These men are told they have to sign these statements or they can't go home," said Tony Buzbee, a Houston-based attorney for 10 Transocean workers. "I think it's pretty callous, but I'm not surprised by it."

Sign this or you cannot go home? That article says volumes.
You certainly can't say it's not fishy that workers were forced to sign waivers stating they didn't witness anything. Now when the "Man" says..."you saw nothing"...we all know they saw something.

There have been several sources of information stating that North Korea was given the go-ahead by Obama to target the rig with a torpedo and it would seem not unlikely that it's the case since those who had direct connection to the drilling operation on that vessel have been silenced. I would be happy to hear that at least one of those people had a conscience that wouldn't let them sleep at night until they spoke out about it.
10 Linked BP Oil Spill Whistle-blowers & Experts Continue To Mysteriously Die
In the last year and a half at least 10 experts, whistleblowers and BP connected individuals have died under mysterious circumstances.
This information was widely reported in the below April 10th, 2011 video which at the time listed 9 deaths and 3 imprisonments, disappearances, or attempted assassinations.
Now, another BP oil spill connected individual has mysteriously died, moving the number of oil spill connected deaths to at least 10.
Most recently George Thomas Wainwright, a BP ROV pilot was supposedly killed in a freak shark attack in Australia on the 22nd October 2011.
While this is obviously a very sad story, it may have a more sinister meaning considering the fact that at least 10 other BP and oil spill related whistleblowers or experts have died since the oil spill that saw a horrendous amount of openly toxic dispersant sprayed throughout the gulf.

I think that evidence since the alleged accident has very strongly pointed to an intentional incident to create such a disaster. We may never hear a true report of how many lives have been harmed or destroyed by the spill or the even worse chemicals which were continuously added to the gulf since. He has noted it all though and every person accountable for it.

2 years later, fish sick near BP oil spill site


BARATARIA BAY, La. (AP) - Open sores. Parasitic infections. Chewed-up-looking fins. Gashes. Mysterious black streaks. Two years after the drilling-rig explosion that touched off the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history, scientists are beginning to suspect that fish in the Gulf of Mexico are suffering the effects of the petroleum.
