for 30+ years of having worked in the joint command centers during major oil spills, at no time, in no case, for any spill has free access been allowed to anyone out of curiosity. Wonder why this SOP is now called a "top secret cover-up" - rhetorical question only!

Just far too many times BP has been caught lying...How can they ever be trusted???...THEY CAN"T and it's all self inflicted by trying to cover the truth..

There is no taking up for them anymore...wrong is wrong and what they did and the tactics they have used is criminal and it will come out in the hearings and they will pay the price....

They are NOT open to anyone and we are sick and tired of them and their lies on the Gulf Coast ...and NOBODY can change how we feel for how they have acted and treated us...and NO words can make them right.

I can confirm that K1 has it right on this one, no cover up...just good security and risk assessment...standard operating procedures

and I would also include electrical power transmission centers, pipeline control centers, nuclear power plants (they even have armed ladies and gents there), VISA, any large bank, transunion, experian, and equifax transaction centers..etc...etc..etc..

so all BP can get right is their own security and that makes the whole spill right and them GREAT???????????????

If they had nothing to hide there is no reason to turn a way a REPORTER with ID...

I don't think so, once they offered openess to the press then someone with credentials saying they are press shows up to do a story and they refuse access just proves they are not OPEN and the reporter did his job to show they were not open to the press as PROMISED...BP stated they are working 24 hours a day..well someone came to see and they would not let them see...so are they really working or lying AGAIN?

They should have let the reporter in and not shown him the door with hints of physical removal...

just more reason NOT to trust BP

I would trust a MARITIME REPORTER(one of us a sailor) over BP anyday

and with CHINA and RUSSIA drilling in our GULF how can anything be TOP SECRET?..

If it was RUSSIA or CHINA with this spill acting like BP would you trust CHINA and RUSSIA at their word??

Not too sure how one makes the link between office security with China, North Korea, Russia, etc... nor was my comment a suggestion they deserve your trust - merely trying to point out that simple office security is commonplace. How one leaps from this to trying to hide the truth just feeds the rampant paranoia expressed here.

First of all it's only paranoia IF they were telling the truth which they have not done since day one...The rampid PARANOIA is what defines BP...they are the ones using deception , hiding truths ,altering photo's and not allowing the press in.Why if they were honest did it take almost a month to view the real flow rate(they lied about)?????..So I am not paranoid they are...why because they are hiding the truth...paranoia runs deep and its their OWN fault brought on by their fears of us finding the truth and IMPOSING FINES

so if you are going to name call and call someone paranoid call BP paranoid.. .. not us living and smelling the death from their lie everyday...

Did I hide the flow rate to keep from being fined??....NO

Did I use dispersants that are killing the gulf to hide the oil ??...NO

Did I alter Photo's to hide the truth??...NO

Did I stage clean-up infront of the cameras when the President visited only to remove them when the press left??...NO

Did I promise openess to the press the deny them access??...NO


Now who is paranoid?

The is obviously useless but

most release rates are not knows definitively until late in the game, if ever. Most are usually under-estimated for obvious reasons - this one being no different than any other.

The fine has nothing to do with the flow rate!

Do you really think they could hide the spill by using dispersants?

Do you really think things are not staged when the Pres shows up with his media hoards at any oil spill or any other event for that matter?
The list goes on but why bother...
