Obama Slammed In The British Press Over BP

President Barack Obama pointing the finger at BP

U.S. President Barack Obama is being slammed in the British press over his treatment of their company BP (British Petroleum). The unprecedented oil spill that occurred off the coast of the U.S. state of Louisiana, has polluted the Gulf Of Mexico, with spewing oil.

The British press contends, the Obama Administration is being nasty to BP, threatening its executives and trying to block dividends from being paid, when it was primarily the American company, Halliburton, that caused the spill, via the rig they operated on BP's behalf in America.

BP stated they outsourced the work to Halliburton and Transocean, who used their own "procedures" "employees" and "equipment." Thus far, BP has paid $1.5 billion in clean up costs and claims, but feels it is being unfairly targeted over what was Halliburton's fault.

It is the Judiciary Report's position that Halliburton and Transocean should be required to pay for clean up costs and claims as well, as their negligence contributed to the unprecedented environmental disaster.

Side Bar: Even before the time of the oil spill, when the Judiciary Report had not even written a word about them yet, the site would receive visits from Halliburton, as attested by website statistics. What could cause them to visit the site. Hmm, could it be my wit, charm, my refusal to use proper punctuation and correct capitalization. The possibilities are endless.
