Video: Grand Isle Security Clash

During the time I spent on Grand Isle this week, I realized there was a huge disconnect between the people giving instructions at the top and the people receiving them at the bottom…especially when it involves the media. The beach is a perfect example. No one knows what the hell is going on. I previously wrote about my experiences here and now have video to back it up a day later.

Take a look at this letter from BP’s Doug Suttles, then watch the video. Here’s the accompanying story.

  1. Great job, Scott. I’ve watched a few other incidents where the press just rolled over. You handled that brilliantly, right up to thanking those guys for cleaning up the beach.

  2. Mr.Walker,Ive been trying to reach you but youre in the field so its difficult. Please see the information Im trying to reach you about at Louisianahelper.squarespace.com. I would very much appreciate hearing from you. P.S keep up the good work. The people deserve to know the truth and thats the way you tell it.

  3. This oil spill was no accident, just another example of socialized risk and privatized profits.
