Oh, great. Just wonderful. Why didn't anyone notice sooner? Why didn't I? Are we sheep?
Oil spill media blackout
hides worse spill
Original posted on June 30, in Political Spin Examiner by Maryann Tobin
While everyone has been focused on what BP puts in front of the camera, the third oil leak, which was admitted to by BP months ago, is being ignored in the oil spill media blackout.
For those who may have forgotten: On May 5, 2010, The Washington Post reported: “BP caps one of three oil leaks in gulf.”
The Huffington Post concurred: “NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The Coast Guard says BP has managed to cap one of three leaks at a Deepwater oil well..”
So the first leak was confirmed capped, we are all watching the second leak on live videos provided by BP. What has become of the third oil leak?
Back in May, oil industry expert Matt Simmons told MSNBC “All that oil didn’t come from that little dinky hole,” referring to the video flow from the BOP. He went on to explain his theory of the “elephant behind the mouse.”
Simmons claimed there was another leak about 6 miles away on the ocean floor - far worse than the one we have been shown.
Today there was a comment on this website that is bone-chilling. While the source is not confirmed, the comment makes perfect sense and it supports the remarks of Expert Matt Simmons, who made the same claim of a third, massive leak.

“Mark” - Spoke with a BP employee today and they are positive that BP America will declare bankruptcy and peel off the North American refineries/interests and try to sell them off within 2 months.
Apparently the bore hole is without the casing now and the flow of oil is unimpeded about 8 miles from the blow out preventer that we see on TV. ....
What this person was really scared of is the calls for nuking the bore hole. She said that this would not be advisable due to the size of the methane bubble in solution around the well head area, and the presence of the methyl hydrate reservoir in the sub surface strata. “
While this source is not 'official' it is not completely unfounded to imagine that the rather untrustworthy BP will walk away from the environmental and economic horror they have thrust on the United States - without a second thought.
On June 29, 2010, Allegiance Capitol Corporation V.P. Fred McCallister told CNN that BP is deliberately sinking oil with the toxic chemical disbursant Corexit, to hide the size of the oil spill.
McCallister said, “Everybody in Europe, where the standard practice is to raise the oil and collect it, is scratching their heads, and quite honestly laughing at what’s happening in the Gulf.” He added, “Everyone is looking at us and wondering why we’re allowing this to happen.”
An excellent question, especially since no one is talking about the third “elephant behind the mouse” oil leak.
The predictions made by the experts in the video below turned out to be true. The 'top kill' did fail to stop the leak. Mr. Simmons may also be right about the larger leak, which has gotten little attention since the video originally aired on May 26, 2010
Be seeing you.
