Expects Say Obama Admin. Misrepresented Views To Push Drilling Moratorium

The Obama administration changing things to push their own liberal agenda? No! It can’t be

The seven experts who advised President Obama on how to deal with offshore drilling safety after the Deepwater Horizon explosion are accusing his administration of misrepresenting their views to make it appear that they supported a six-month drilling moratorium — something they actually oppose.

The experts, recommended by the National Academy of Engineering, say Interior Secretary Ken Salazar modified their report last month, after they signed it, to include two paragraphs calling for the moratorium on existing drilling and new permits.

Salazar’s report to Obama said a panel of seven experts “peer reviewed” his recommendations, which included a six-month moratorium on permits for new wells being drilled using floating rigs and an immediate halt to drilling operations.

“None of us actually reviewed the memorandum as it is in the report,” oil expert Ken Arnold told Fox News.

“What was in the report at the time it was reviewed was quite a bit different in its impact to what there is now. So we wanted to distance ourselves from that recommendation.”

It really is freaking amateur hour over at the White House. Time and time again, they have been caught in these types of incidents. Things that should be, unfortunately, political business as usual, end up being just a bit more egg one their faces again and again.

Meanwhile, the most transparent administration EVAH! is being slammed for blocking media access of the BP spill. By an environmental website, Mother Nature News.
