The US Gov has lost all credibility on the BP oil spill

I have posted before on the BP oil spill and the U.S. government's apparent complicity in a cover up, which seemed to have much more to do with getting the story out of the news than with any meaningful attempt to deal with the crisis. Recently, the White House claimed that 75% of the oil had been removed from the Gulf either through natural processes or clean up efforts. A number of independent scientists disagreed - see here for example. And now, it turns out that a government researcher admits that he lied about the amount of oil left in Gulf.

One wonders what else they have lied about....
