70 Days Later; US Accepts International Assistance For Gulf Spill

Editor’s Note: Seventy days after the oil rig explosion in the Gulf, Obama accepts international assistance.  70 days…

All reports are suggesting that the oil spill is far more devastating that what’s being let on by this administration.  The media has very limited access, and, considering it’s track record, there’s no reason to suggest that the reporting would be any different if that were not the case. 

The Obama administration is doing a great disservice to the residents of the Gulf Coast.  It may be years before we understand the full extent of that disservice.  Considering the incredible criticism that Bush endured due to Katrina, this is yet another glaring example of the gross injustice in America today.


US Accepts International Assistance For Gulf Spill

AP News

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is accepting help from 12 countries and international organizations in dealing with the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The State Department said in a statement Tuesday that the U.S. is working out the particulars of the help that’s been accepted.

The identities of all 12 countries and international organizations were not immediately announced. One country was cited in the State Department statement — Japan, which is providing two high-speed skimmers and fire containment boom.

More than 30 countries and international organizations have offered to help with the spill. The State Department hasn’t indicated why some offers have been accepted and others have not.
