Three weeks after this last reiteration, we note that a large explosion takes place in an offshore platform off of the coast of Louisiana. Naturally, the blame game has started for the ensuing oil leak that now threatens the entire Gulf Coast region.
HuffPo wasted no time in running with a WSJ story that puts the blame on Halliburton. Naturally, they would never put much stock in much of anything the Journal has to say about much of anything, unless it supported their biases and delusions. But this is Halliburton we are talking about--- or to hear some describe it, Satan Inc.
Some are blaming BP. They say cost-cutting is the primary culprit. The Obama Administration seems to agree.
BP is blaming Transocean Ltd., the owner of the rig. They say something called a "blowout preventer" failed to work.
But the one theory that has yet to be considered in all of this is eco-terrorism.
Think about it for a minute.
When was the last time an event like this occurred? How often does it occur? And doesn't it seem odd that it comes so close to a Presidential announcement like the one that occurred in early April?
Now that this has happened, we have more clarion calls for "no new drilling". Obama has even said that until we get to the bottom of the cause of this disaster, there can be no new consideration of new drilling efforts.
I know this makes me sound paranoid and I could be 100% wrong. But am I the only one that has thought about this possible scenario?

Who is to say this wasn't the plan, all along?
