Obama administration blocks U.S. Naval support for Gulf Oil Spill clean-up
by Iain Mackenzie
U.S. Navy spokesman Lt. Myers Vasquez was reported to have said in the Naval Times that "he was unaware of any military personnel who might be sent to help with the cleanup."
The U.S. Navy is well equipped to have significantly lowered the amount of damage that is taking place in the Gulf of Mexico. But, why would the Barack Obama administration essentially "veto" the use of the U.S. Navy to prevent ecocide in the Gulf of Mexico?
Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell said the military is "assessing" how it might help and what resources could be deployed, while the destruction in the Gulf spreads. He did not say how long that might take. Could the Gulf of Mexico oil spill support some kind of capitalistocratic agenda unbeknownst to the American people?
