Federal safety inspectors signed off on the Deep Water Horizon twelve days before the oil spill.

The application for the Deep Water Horizon to operate in that area was submitted to the Obama Administration in 2009.

There were a number of safty inspections that took place before the spill and for some reason the results of those inspections are not being released to the American People.

What is the Obama Administration afraid of.

Peter Fonda, who helped produce "The Big Fix", a documentary about the BP Spill, has said flat out that the Obama Administration is obstructing the investigation of the spill.
