BP Commission Criticizes Louisiana Gov. Jindal Over Berms
Written by 

Summary: A draft from the "National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling" is sharply critical of Governor Bobby Jindal and Louisiana elected officials for its role in the debate over the sand berms.

Were the sand berms that got so much attention during the height of the BP oil spill necessary?
 

Not according to the the fdraft of the  "National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling".  In THE STORY OF THE LOUISIANA BERMS PROJECT, the draft is quite critical and claims the berms were a creation of Louisiana political pressure by Governor Jindal and other leaders.

The first paragraph of the draft states, "Former Louisiana governor Huey Long once described himself to an interviewer as follows: “Just say I’m sui generis, and let it go at that.”1 Indeed, Louisiana’s politicians and politics are unique. And it was this unique environment that served as the primary staging grounds for the response to the Deepwater Horizon spill. The leaders of the spill response could not divorce key decisions from their political context."

The document called Staff working draft No. 8, states, "Staff Working Papers are written by the staff of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling for the use of members of the Commission. They are preliminary and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Commission or any of its members. In addition, they may be based in part on confidential interviews with government and non-government personnel."

Over the past month, Governor Bobby Jindal has sharply criticized the Obama administration for its "failures" in the BP oil spill aftermath.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
