Well, I guess this pretty much says who is in who's pocket. And yet people still think the fabricated outrage over the spill and the concern for the Gulf habitat residents from the federal government is real. Wonder how many at the MMS are going to be held responsible for the Deepwater Horizon?


Those approvals, federal records show, include one for the well drilled by the Deepwater Horizon rig, which exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and resulting in thousands of barrels of oil spilling into the gulf each day.

The Minerals Management Service, or M.M.S., also routinely overruled its staff biologists and engineers who raised concerns about the safety and the environmental impact of certain drilling proposals in the gulf and in Alaska, according to a half-dozen current and former agency scientists.

It looks like I was right when I said that Obama was opening the floodgates offshore drilling. It makes me particularly disturbed about the way the administration has been careless about this. They knew the risks. But to think that allowing off shore drilling without a permit, allowing anyone to do it, and to not expect risks, is crazy talk.
