Big Brother Says “All is Well, Go Back to Sleep”

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) air monitoring through June 10, 2010, presumably found air quality levels were “normal” on the Gulf coastline [1]. Of course this is the same EPA whose former director, Todd Christy, boldly stated that the post 911 air was fit to breathe. [2] Christy’s 911 comments have been removed from the EPA website but can be cross-referenced in the Guardian. [3] The EPA’s provably wrong declaration doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the agency’s ability to fix the current Gulf crisis.

Obama’s personal point man on the spill, Thad Allen, stated “the well no longer posed any threat to the Gulf. Crews will begin the last few remaining operations needed to abandon the well this week.”[4] Thad Allen’s statement followed Obama’s declaration in which he boldly proclaimed that the Gulf is safe and “open for business” [5], [6]. Officials from both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the EPA echoed Obama’s safety claims.[7]
