There seems little doubt that the giant oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is a vast man-made disaster... probably much worse than anything ever seen in those parts. So now I am waiting to receive one of those frequent emails that come with conspiracy theories from Wayne Madsen.
Usually, those emails contain some nefarious plot supposedly concocted by George Bush and the CIA. How about this:
[Image from The New York Times]No doubt this little spoof of the conspiracy-around-each-corner author will provoke an equally absurd conspiracy theory. How about Hall Of Record gets paid enormous sums by the oil industry to deflect blame from them? Nope, just checked and nothing has come in from BP or any other company in the oil industry. Too bad.
WMR has learned through back channels that former President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have been involved with interest of the nuclear industry to sabotage President Barack Obama's attempt to expand U.S. offshore drilling, something that this group has secretly opposed for over a decade. WMR has learned that both Bush and Cheney have received millions of dollars to push nuclear power as the source of U.S. energy independence and see abundant oil as a threat to their plans and enormous profits.
This nuclear group has secretly contracted with rogue members of the CIA to subvert all efforts to expand oil production. WMR has evidence that a critical component of the oil drilling rig was intentionally weakened in a manner that would delay the failure for several weeks and make it impossible to detect after the failure caused the destruction of the oil rig.
Bush and Cheney are now meeting secretly with the nuclear group to target other energy producing sources in plausibly deniable ways that leave nuclear power as the only viable alternative of electrical energy independence. They are expected to receive a total of over $50 million each for their involvement. WMR has learned that funds will be in the forms of various impossible-to-trace assets which are easily convertible to cash.
Bush, Cheney, and the CIA have denied such involvement; however, WMR sources are impeachable.
TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE TAKING THIS TOO SERIOUSLY.... THIS POST WAS A SPOOF OF THE CONSPIRACY EMAILS THAT GET FORWARDED TO ME ORIGINATING FROM HERE. BUSH AND CHENEY ARE NOT TO BLAME FOR EVERY PROBLEM THAT OCCURS DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.
