When Aldous Huxley put a spin on a Gospel quote and wrote, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you mad," he could not have better had in mind the Obama administration, British Petroleum and our elected officials in their handling the oil catastrophe in the Gulf. There is plenty for Americans and the global citizenry to be fuming about, incensed at the trails of deception, lies and erroneous propaganda and rhetoric issuing from our corporate and government leadership.
Investigative journalist and author Michael Ruppert knows this story all too well. For the past decade he has been researching and writing on peak oil and its contribution to the future collapse of the nation's economy and the American of life. In 1998, he founded From The Wilderness, a newsletter and website devoted to disseminating reports and analyses about government corruption and cover-ups, the CIA's narcotics operations--which he brought to light in the mid-1970s during his stint as a narcotics investigator for the LAPD--and the politics and science of peak oil and the energy industry. Among Michael's most recent books are The Presidential Energy Policy and Confronting Collapse: The Crisis of Energy and Money in a Post Peak Oil World, both released in 2009.
Last week on a live radio broadcast over the Progressive Radio Network, Ruppert presented his overview of the Deep Water Horizon oil spill crisis, with some new insights gleaned from his investigations that are deeply disturbing.
