Caught In Another Lie

Caught In Another Lie

To absolutely no one’s surprise, an inspector general concluded that the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the administration’s six-month ban on new deep-water drilling.

The Associated Press reported that the inspector general concluded the White House’s changes “resulted ‘in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.’ But it hadn’t been. Outside scientists were asked only to review new safety measures for offshore drilling.”

In other words, the Administration lied about the need to halt offshore drilling in order to push its “Green” agenda. The result has been crippling job losses along the Gulf coast and increasing oil prices — up about $7 a barrel since the spill and still climbing.

Barack Obama and his minions claim to be on the side of the “working people.” But oil workers apparently don’t count. Nor do those in the coal industry. Nor does anyone else, who must deal with a falling dollar and rising prices resulting from the Administration’s feckless energy policies.

But he’s all for the government subsidizing inefficient, ineffective and unproven Green jobs. And he apparently has no problem with the United States becoming increasingly dependent on foreign oil.

That the Administration lied to achieve its ends is no surprise. It’s not the first Administration to do that. But that so many on the Left would sit silently by while it destroys an industry and continues to cripple the U.S. economy is a surprise.

Apparently, when it comes to going Green, the Left believes the end justifies the means.
