The federal Minerals Management Service gave permission to BP and dozens of other oil companies to drill in the Gulf of Mexico without first getting required permits from another agency that assesses threats to endangered species — and despite strong warnings from that agency about the impact the drilling was likely to have on the gulf.
Those approvals, federal records show, include one for the well drilled by the Deepwater Horizon rig, which exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and resulting in thousands of barrels of oil spilling into the gulf each day.
The accusation that the minerals agency has ignored risks is also being levied by scientists working for the agency

Didn't BP donate A LOT of money to Obama's campaign?

In an ad, Obama says, "I don’t take money from oil companies. Obama has accepted more than $213,000 from individuals who work for companies in the oil and gas industry and their spouses. Two of Obama's bundlers are top executives at oil companies and are listed on his Web site as raising between $50,000 and $100,000 for the presidential hopeful."
~The Obama fanatics actually believe his words over facts and his actions... Just like Wall Street, Health Care, Fannie and Freddie... Corrupt indeed. Enter the liberal free passes, "all politicians are corrupt" crap
