Papantonio: BP Unleashes the Flying Monkeys

Posted on July 05, 2010 by bp complaints

BP is a major player in Washington, but is their political influence and money going to be enough to keep the regulators and investigators at bay? Mike Papantonio appears on MSNBC’s The Ed Show to talk about the political aspects of the BP oil spill.

Former President Bill Clinton said during a panel discussion in South Africa that it may become necessary to blow up the Deepwater Horizon well that continues to spew oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Watch the video at left. His comments on the leak start about 2:30 in. “Unless we send the Navy down deep to blow up the well and cover the leak with piles and piles and piles of rock and debris, which may become necessary – you don’t have to use a nuclear weapon by the way, I’ve seen all that stuff, just blow it up – unless we’re going to do that, we are dependent on the technical expertise of these people from BP,” Clinton said. There has been some pressure for BP to simply blow up the well, with critics suggesting the company is forgoing that option out of a desire to get as much oil as possible from the rig. “If we demolish the well using explosives, the investment’s gone,” former nuclear submarine officer and a visiting scholar on nuclear policy at Columbia University Christopher Brownfield said in a Fox News interview in May. “They lose hundreds of millions of dollars from the drilling of the well, plus no lawmaker in his right mind would allow BP to drill again in that same spot. So basically, it’s an all-or-nothing thing with BP: They either keep the well alive, or they lose their whole investment and all the oil that they could potentially get from that well.” (He penned an opinion piece in the New York Times making the argument.)

    When will the people of this country finally get fed up with the lies and demagoguery of the right wing, GOP and corporations?

    Domestic drilling does the opposite of what Sarah Palin says. It DOES NOT make us more secure or less dependent on foreign oil. It endangers the environment, as witnessed by this accident. This spill is going to deal a crushing blow to the economy.
    Every drop of domestic oil is put on the world market, where anyone can buy it. It is not earmarked for domestic use. If we deplete our own oil, doesn’t that make us even more dependent on other sources and less secure?

    These two guys are the best, blatant brutal TRUTH in it’s purest form!

    Yeah, i’m sure the environmentalists love this apocalypse. No amount of safe drilling could do as much damage as this disaster. Eco-terrorists may be irrational but they know when something will do more damage than what they seek to prevent.
