Fox phoned Fabrigas from Grand Isle, LA.
According to Fox, he was doing “man on the street” interviews talking about the spill. The area was bustling with activity. He saw helicopters “everywhere” and black Humvees with “Disaster Relief” on the side which he believed were not doing disaster relief. Fox felt himself being observed by workers.
A local resident told him that there was much more to the story than anyone was talking about. The resident estimated that “the media are not reporting one-tenth of what is going on out here.” Another informant said that if locals were caught talking to the media or taking pictures, they would be arrested.
Fox said that police are stopping cars and arresting people with cameras. The beaches, state parks, and air space over the spill are closed. Fox was unable so far to get to the coast.
He speculated that the pressure was coming from BP rather than the government.
He cited Stephen Kennedy of Bioremediation Inc. as saying that one of the plumes was 20 miles long and a mile wide, a week ago. Fox speculates that BP is trying to hide the extent of the spill.
I recently posted an account of police action after Hurricane Andrew, which appears to have been a HAARP-induced weather event. Fox’s description suggests that the same type of law-enforcement procedures are now at work in the Gulf.
Neither Fox nor Fabrigas appear aware of the sources we rely on. The fear which underlies their reporting appears to be around an imposition of martial law. I’ve said on a number of occasions that our sources, such as Matthew and SaLuSa, have assured us that martial law will not occur. That difference in perspectives should be factored in if you listen to the broadcast.
Fox is in the area for two weeks and plans to make regular reports through Fabrigas.
