The President of the United States is actively using United States military forces to threaten journalists who are trying to document the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. U.S. Coast Guard officers working with BP officials threatened CBS reporters with arrest for photographing an oil-fouled shoreline. A Coast Guard officer says, ‘These are BP’s rules. These are not our rules.’
This is simply horrifying. The Obama presidency has ended. I’m a lifelong Democrat and I’m frightened of this guy. I want him out and out fast. Any president who uses the U.S. military to threaten and harass journalists needs to be removed from office instantly. It’s criminal behavior. Our military is now apparently answering to British Petroleum in the Gulf region.
There are increasing reports coming out of Louisiana that cell phones and cameras are being confiscated and that scientists and research equipment are being turned away from trying to investigate the spill in public lands.
It is beginning to look as if the Obama administration, along with BP, is engaged in a massive cover-up of Gulf oil spill information.
