Put it in writing, Ken!
On May 6, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced a moratorium on issuance of new permits for "off-shore drilling activity." OK, but a small problem: "this policy has never been put into writing and the definition of moratorium has become steadily narrower." Hard to believe? You betcha.
NY Times reports that since April 20 explosion rig waivers have continued to be granted for drilling projects. This was also reported by Karen Tumulty in the Washington Post. Should one more explosion occur on Obama's watch, forget about 2012.
