Taking A SWAT At Oil Rigs In The Gulf
Does anyone here have any idea as to why Barry Sotero wants to send SWAT Teams to EVERY oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico? Of course HE didn't say that but DHS Nappy did.

I tried to find a MSM outlet that is covering this but couldn't find one. Of course the subject is being discussed over on AboveTopSecret and the blogs and Conservative pages but not on MSM.

Any info on this would be appreciated.

Meanwhile back at the ranch........

I finally found an article by CBS where it mentions this about 2/3's of the way down the article. Here's what it said:

Mr. Obama said SWAT teams were being dispatched to the Gulf to investigate oil rigs and said his administration is now working to determine the cause of the disaster.

The president promised to deploy "every single available resource" to the area and ordered his disaster and environmental leaders to go. The Navy is sending 66,000 feet of inflatable boom and seven skimming systems, and using its bases in the region as staging areas for the operation.

Federal officials announced inspections would begin immediately of all oil rigs in the Gulf and subpoena powers would be used in the gathering investigation. But the priority was to support the oil company BP PLC in employing booms, skimmers, chemical dispersants and controlled burns to fight the oil surging from the seabed.

The administration rejected suggestions that the federal government was slow to act in dealing with the spill and expressed frustration with BP's inability to seal the ruptured well head. The government approved the start of drilling for a relief well and was considering approving a second one as industry and government officials worked on multiple fronts to contain the slick.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Lisa Jackson, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency are explected to visit the Gulf Coast Friday, the same day the massive oil spill is expected to hit U.S. coastline.

"This is a spill of national significance," Napolitano said during a briefing for reporters at the White House.

Classifying the spill with the phrase "national significance" allows the government to tap funds from other areas of the country's coastline to pay for efforts to clean up and monitor the spill, Napolitano said.

Napolitano pledged her department will make sure that BP will reimburse the government for any taxpayer dollars spent on the clean up.

David Hayes, a deputy secretary of the Interior, told reporters that Salazar has ordered immediate inspections of all deep water oil platforms in Gulf.

"That inspection operation is underway as we speak," Hayes said.

Salazar wasn't at the briefing because he was already at a command center in Houston, Hayes said.

Napolitano said the Homeland Security and Interior departments are conducting a joint investigation into what caused the explosion on the rig.

Brice-O'Hara described Wednesday's controlled burn of the oil spill as "very successful," but she said sea and wind conditions won't allow another such burn to be conducted Thursday.

Jackson said the EPA will assist the Coast Guard, which is the lead agency in matters involving the sea and the country's coastline. However, the EPA will monitor air conditions using aircraft and fixed monitors, she said. The EPA will release air quality data within the next few days, she said.

President Obama spoke Thursday with five Gulf state governors from Florida to Texas.

Michael Sole, chief of Florida's Environmental Protection Department, said governments are digging in for a long struggle and it's too soon to know what his state will need from Washington.

"It's only been a week now," he said. "It may be two or three months before they can stop the discharge. The magnitude of this thing gives me concerns as to whether they're going to be able to address the entire coast of the Gulf of Mexico."

So far, he said, the federal government has acted aggressively and cooperatively.

RE: Taking A SWAT At Oil Rigs In The Gulf
considering Peter Sutherland is both Chairman of the board of BP and on the board of Goldman Sachs, as well as a Knight Commander of the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, I'm not surprised that its being kept quiet, even though its the worst ecological disaster since the Valdez...

The fact that there's SWAT and possibly military involved means it was probably sabotaged, and it's probably going to end up being blamed on terrawrists, instead of what's really going on, which is probably an insurance scam or industrial espionage.
