Two equals sabotage. This just doesn't happen. By getting Obama to halt domestic oil production america becomes a weaker nation. I suspect they are covering something on the BP leak as well.

I believe this is the concern:
Without the dispersant the oil floats to the top of the water and sits, where it can be picked up, of course it also makes it more visible how much oil has leaked, spewed (or whatever term you want to use for this even).
The dispersant they are using breaks the oil down into tiny droplets, prevents it from floating to the surface where it now can be more easily ingested and/or absorbed by the things living in the water.
Not to mention the concern of what chemicals comprise the dispersant.

What good is that if he has no dominion over his own stupidity?

When they said 3300 feet deep they were not talking about the size of the plume, they were talking about its depth from the surface of the Gulf..
Other plumes have been measured at around 300 feet thick.. recalculate that with the length and width and you come up with some reasonable number.
