What Oil? Redux: So now the Deepwater Gusher is capped and all is good! RIGHT? BP Spokesman U.S. Coast Guard Admiral THAD ALLEN says "What we're trying to figure out is where is all the oil at and what can we do about it."(News24 South Africa) Allen goes on to say per ZeroHedge Admiral Allen Says Gas Seep is from the Rigel Gas Field ... Did BP Accidentally Tap Into the Rigel Gas Field?"You caught me without my glasses. I think I can answer your question. I think we believe it might be attributed to what’s called the Rigel well, r-i-g-e-l " (READ the whole thing and WATCH the video.) But we think Mac McClelland from MoJo sums it up best in Mainstream Media Helps BP Pretend There's No Oil As for the reporter's alarmingly unsubstantiated claim that "The beaches should be relatively painless to mop up," I can't even count the number of correspondents down here who've pointed out that digging a finger under the surface of supposedly clean sand turns up crude, or the number of cleanup workers who've said cleanup efforts are strictly cosmetic, or that no matter what they do the contamination just keeps bubbling up. Take a listen to new Bleating Pig (BP) CEO BOB DUDLEY inBP's Next CEO Warns Against Push To Limit Drilling (Morning Edition NPR) who replaced Tony "I want my life back from the little people" Hayward saying "Our success and our ability to do business in the United States, I think, depends on our corporate response and follow-through on this." READ: We need a better "image" on teevee and the magic Oil-God Corexit made the oil disappear! even though by most estimates Deepwater spewed one Exxon Valdez every 3-4 days! For three months!! Meanwhile BBC reports US 'fails to account' for Iraq reconstruction billions: Out of just over $9bn (£5.8bn), $8.7bn is unaccounted for, the inspector says. ~ According to the report, the Pentagon is unable to fully account for $8.7bn of funds it withdrew between 2004 and 2007, and of that amount it "could not provide documentation to substantiate how it spent $2.6bn". Schools, roads, sewers and bridges are falling apart in the U.S. but $9bn tax dollars "go missing" in Iraq? You think that's bad? The Independent UK reports Toxic legacy of US assault on Fallujah 'worse than Hiroshima Dr Chris Busby, a visiting professor at the University of Ulster and one of the authors of the survey of 4,800 individuals in Fallujah, said it is difficult to pin down the exact cause of the cancers and birth defects. He added that "to produce an effect like this, some very major mutagenic exposure must have occurred in 2004 when the attacks happened". ~ He said: "My guess is that they used a new weapon against buildings to break through walls and kill those inside." Huh. BACKGROUND from United For Peace: "For the legal case that U.S. use of depleted uranium and the destruction of Fallujah were crimes of war, see a Nov. 20, 2007, lecture by Prof. Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign". As for the bombshell wikileaks please sift through below for items, way too many to cover here or on the Sunday Talkies for that matter! CHRISTIANE ANAMPOUR finally takes the helm of This Week with BOB GATES and NANCY PELOSI with PAUL KRUGMAN explaining to George Will how wrong Will is about just about everything. Face the Bob goes with ADM MIKE MULLEN and JON KYL while Meet the David gets more of MULLEN. State of Candy gets CARL LEVIN and LINDSEY GRAHAM and Fake Snooze gets the biggest teabaggers of them all (I'm sure you'll tune in, right after you scratch a chalkboard with sharp nails and break all your good china, heh.) The Brick TeeVee Crew is still hung over from the all-week b-day bash but managed to contribute some spiffy garden clean-up, not to mention picking up all the beer and whiskey bottles from the compound and recyling the whole lot! Enjoy your Sunday and the rest of your week!

HELP BRADLEY MANNING Julian Assange, wikileaks: Asked about Mr. Manning, Mr. Assange said: "There is no allegation as far as we can determine" that the documents posted on WikiLeaks Sunday are "connected to Bradley Manning." He said WikiLeaks has nonetheless "committed funds" to Pfc. Manning's legal defense, offering his military-appointed legal team money in case it wants to hire civilian counsel. (WSJ)

Offshore Drilling is Not The Answer: Restore the Moratorium
from Surfrider Foundation (h/t jen)
The tragic and devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a stark reminder that offshore oil drilling is not the answer.
The Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded and sank has spilled millions of gallons of oil into the ecologically rich waters in the Gulf of Mexico and continues to gush 210,000 gallons of oil into the sea every day. The spill remains unabated and now has the potential to become one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. The unfolding catastrophe clearly illustrates that offshore drilling is not safe and new technology is not fool proof.
Tell the Obama Administration new drilling is NOT THE ANSWER. Our coasts and the economy they support cannot withstand anymore!
We are reminded why the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill led to state and federal moratoriums on offshore oil drilling. The tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico makes it clear that it is time once again time to restore those moratoriums.

    Charles Goyette July 30, 2010. Charles Goyette, former Antiwar Radio co-contributor and author of The Dollar Meltdown : Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, discusses the sacrifice of social programs to preserve the sacrosanct Pentagon budget, how American insularity breeds ignorance, the worthless 2300-page financial reform bill passed by Congress, how alternate systems of money and commerce will bypass Fed control and why oil and gold will hold their value against a declining dollar.

Internationally syndicated columnist Eric Margolis discusses the differences between the WikiLeaks Afghan War files and the Pentagon Papers, why the media won’t press the issue and inflame public opinion against the war, the U.S. ultimatum after 9/11 that made Pakistan walk a tightrope between servitude and strategic interests, how private mercenary contractors got out of control and why troop surges are usually met with even larger resistance surges. THEN Tom Engelhardt, author of The American Way of War: How Bush’s Wars Became Obama’s, discusses the flood of new leaks following the WikiLeaks blockbuster, a possible insurgency within the U.S. military or intelligence services that is determined to end the Afghanistan War, the unprecedented secrecy revealed in the “Top Secret America” Washington Post piece and the markedly different emphasis in the U.K. Guardian vs. The New York Times on the WikiLeaks documents. The show ends with listener calls and some Q&A. LISTEN Margolis/Engelhardt (mp3) 44:44
