So how did the Administration calculate the size of the BP oil spill and determine that it all seemed to go away? Congressman Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., plans on getting to the bottom of this.
In letters to the Coast Guard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the United States Geological Survey, he asked to see all drafts of reports regarding the oil spill. He also asked to see emails.
“Because our legal system will assess financial responsibility for the spill in terms of the amount of oil released, the long-standing practice of severely underestimating the spill’s size concerns me greatly,” Rep. Grijalva’s letters state.
Where do we begin? For the first few months after the oil spill, the Obama Administration seemed to be nothing but chummy with BP. For a while there, it was hard to tell where the Obama Administration ended, and where BP began.
