Critical questions 1

Did the Obama administration know that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig was leaking oil into the ocean floor some nine weeks before it exploded?

At Townhall, Kevin McCullough writes in a kind of open letter to Obama:

It seems incomprehensible that you Mr. President and other members of the administration still have your jobs when it is now being reported that the federal government was apprised by BP on February 13th that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig was leaking oil and natural gas into the ocean floor. In fact according to documents in your own department’s files (MMS) you knew that BP was fighting large cracks at the base of the well for roughly ten days back before the spring thaw had arrived. Further it seems you were also apprised six weeks prior to the rig’s fatal explosion that killed eleven of her workers, when a smart guy from Berkley, you know the global capital of intellectualism, announced to the world a near miss on the rig by stating, “They damn near blew up the rig.” It’s also now being reported it appears that BP was asking for your help on this matter long before the deadly accident and the now gushing well of tar.

As a matter of fact it appears they told you on February 13th, and desired your help.

Given this new bit of revelation Mr. President I’m not sure how you can sleep at night knowing that your inaction did cost the lives of eleven family men in Louisiana.

If these allegations are true, they are very serious indeed.

Kevin McCullough does not give the source or sources of his information.

Who is “the smart guy from Berkley”? How does he know that “they” nearly blew the rig up? Who exactly are “they”?

If all this is true, we wait to see the consequences for the administration.

    a further question: Does the Obama remember that it was he who signed a safety inspection exemption for that specific facility? Does he realize that the Clean Water Act makes the Executive branch of government completely responsible for handling the cleanup of such a catastrophe? I mean, they guy DID receive more bribes from BP than any other politician in history…it would be the least he could do for his bigwig friends at BP
