BP Oil Spill, News You May Have Missed

The BP oil spill.
IMHO, we need to shout these facts out until everyone knows them.

Before the explosion, BP
1. Using a blowout preventer with known mechanical faults.
2. Faking the pressure tests, that indicate integrity.
3. Skipping the safety procedures and not filling the well with mud.

And: http://news.videosift.com/video/60-Minutes-Deepwater-Horizon-s-Blowout-Part-2

You may have seen analysis on how the booming effort is a joke. Watch this and be informed. Just skip the first two minutes.

Finally I have a video Titled "Obama gives speech in front of actors posing as beach workers. "
http://news.videosift.com/video/Obama-Speech-In-Front-Of-Actors-Posing-As-Oil-Spill-Workers

Would BP hire hundreds of workers just so Obama could stand in front of them and tell Americans that Obama is helping? It’s a short Anderson Cooper video and well worth watching. Link above this paragraph.

Thanks for reading FDL people!

OH! One more video you will like!
