Ask me a Question

While BP has been destroying our environment, the US government has been paying them more

anticapitalist:

Despite its oil well causing the worst spill in U.S. history, oil giant BP has enjoyed increased business with the Department of Defense.
 
Sales of BP fuel to the Pentagon rose 33%, from $1.02 billion in 2010—when the Gulf of Mexico became fouled with oil—to $1.35 billion in 2011.
 
BP is by far and away the No. 1 supplier of fuel to the military, receiving 49% more in defense contracts than the No. 2 supplier, Valero Energy Corp.
 
Representative Edward Markey (D-Massachusetts), the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, told Bloomberg “our military shouldn’t renew lucrative contracts” for the company, not “when BP still owes billions of dollars in possible fines and penalties for their spill in the Gulf of Mexico.”
 
Defense contract decisions are made by the Defense Logistics Agency, which has been headed since November 2011 by Vice Admiral Mark D. Harnitchek.
 
According to a database kept by the Project on Government Oversight (POGO), since 2000 BP has paid more than $2.6 billion in fines, penalties and settlements as a result of 58 cases of misconduct that have included environmental and labor violations, contract fraud and antitrust activities in the United States. It currently has 19 separate misconduct cases pending, most of them dealing with the Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosion and oil spill.
How does this make ANY sense at all?
