Obama's Gulf Swim Was Fake - by Stephen Lendman


On August 15, AP reported that Obama gave his "personal assurances of (the) Gulf's safety," saying:


"Beaches all along the Gulf Coast are clean, they are safe, and they are open for business."


He lied.


The same day, Britain's government owned BBC reported:


"Barack Obama has taken a swim in the Gulf of Mexico (to) reassure Americans that the waters are safe despite the recent oil spill."


US corporate media reporters repeated the message, CNN's senior White House correspondent Ed Henry among them, saying "Obama takes (the) plunge, swims in the Gulf (to show it's safe and) open for business."


In fact, area businesses continue to be severely impacted, and the entire region is dangerously unsafe.
