Good article on recent research discoveries of oil covering seabed bottom in Gulf of Mexico. Here is an excerpt:
In recent weeks the administration has been fanfaring the tremendous success of discovering far less spilled oil in the GoM than one would expect. The fallacious conclusion dervied from this "fact" by Obama's henchmen is that the oil just went poof and disappeared, with even the president going spelunking in the GoM to prove just how safe it was. Well, we hope he didn't step on the ocean floor, because a new report by ABC discloses that "miles of oil is sitting on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico."
It gets worse: 'Professor Samantha Joye of the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Georgia, who is conducting a study on a research vessel just two miles from the spill zone [ZH: and must have been one of the +/- 2 US marine scientists who were not put on BP's payroll in the last two months], said the oil has not disappeared, but is on the sea floor in a layer of scum. "We're finding it everywhere that we've looked. The oil is not gone," Joye said. "It's in places where nobody has looked for it."
In the "Readers Comments" section I came across one particularly illustrative comment:

I went down to NOLA a couple of weeks into it.. stayed with the president of the United Commercial Fisherman, spoke with many fisherman who were out there every day, and we scoured hundreds of miles as close to the shore as possible. To compare the state of ooze and fumes before the spill to what happened during is beyond absurd. As alarming as the toxins in the air and the instant sickness it caused (dispersants or fumes from the volcano itself, or both, I couldn't say) were, the overwhelming show of force from military to every conceivable branch of police, guard, Barney Fife from multiple states and game and fish set up to protect BP and Haliburton was astonishingly fascist.
The very fact we know so little and that anyone could claim what the President claimed ( I don't see it so it's not there) proves what readers here know about the state of both our government and media today.
Just like the banksters there should be scores of top of oil men lined up in orange jumpsuits and even more so the government officials who help cover this all up. Cynical as I am I am still amazed at how well this all went for the three - media, gov., corporations."
Majia here: There never was any doubt that more oil would be "discovered." And, it continues to wash up as well....
