Video shows federal officials knew quickly of potential for massive oil flow in Gulf spill

The video appears to have been edited, and it was shot by a person carrying a camera from room to room.

In it, officials are discussing the search for survivors of the Deepwater Horizon explosion. There is a hand-drawn map of the spill dated April 22. At one point, the video freezes on a sign next to a door that reads, "War Room."

In one scene, officials say that the estimate for the leak in a worst-case scenario is between 65,000 and 100,000 barrels per day. A dry erase board on the wall reads "Estim: 64,000 to 110,000 bbls/day. CNN reported 300,000 gal/day."

Why would one person be filming a meeting discussing the Gulf Spill at a federal level via hand held cam, and then post that video online?

Is this (lol) what Obama meant by Transparency of government?!

I guess somebody wanted the public yo know that the government was working on it...
