Attorney General to Arrest Obama


The experts also stress that the Gulf oil spill is unlike any other disaster in the past, greater in its scale — threatening the coastlines of at least four states, and possibly gushing for months — and in the extent of the injuries it has caused. Given those factors, the Justice Department may push to hold individuals accountable.

If we find evidence of illegal behavior, we will be forceful in our response," the attorney general said at a news conference in Louisiana last week. "There is really nothing off the table."


Without crucial environmental and safety studies, the Obama administration intervened in court to ensure that BP’s Gulf drilling operations would go forward. The administration’s efforts applied specifically to the site run by BP. It exploded on April 26, killing 11 workers and creating an oil slick that is an unparalleled disaster on the Gulf Coast.

The Obama administration joined BP in quashing environmental challenges to Gulf drilling in 2009 legal actions by Ken Salazar, Obama’s Secretary of Interior. They asked the federal court of appeals in Washington, DC to overturn their decision that blocked new drilling in the Gulf of Mexico’s outer continental shelf, referring to the same area where the explosion later occurred.

The appeals court partially approved Salazar’s petition, with the condition that the administration produce an environmental impact study for Gulf of Mexico drilling operations. The Obama administration granted BP a “categorical exemption” from producing a legally required environmental impact study and approved its exploration plan for the location of the future spill.
