"The admonition to the crew of the Pisces not to post any photographs was standard protocol during that
period, so that the government could collect information for its investigation and any possible subsequent legal action," stated Kieran Mulvaney, author of "The Whaling Season" and "At the Ends of the Earth. " Greenpeace Research Director Kert Davies said in May that the group is also concerned
about what else the public has never been told about the largest offshore oil spill in U. S. history. Deborah Dupr is author of Vampire of Macondo, the book that tells the public what it has never been told about the BP-wrecked Macondo well, the cracked ocean floor and the subsequent suffering and dying of wildlife and Gulf coast people since Earth Day 2010. A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request report released Wednesday included a trove of photographs of garbage bag upon garbage bag of dead Gulf sea animals that the White House ordered workers retrieving the corpses to keep secret from the public. Government veil of secrecy about BP wrecked Macondo well, the Greenpeace independent investigation began with the discovery of a dead, rotting, partially eaten by sharks sperm whale in the Gulf. "The White House was sitting on this stuff for over two years, at the same time they were saying everything was fine, that the oil was gone, and while they were rushing ahead with plans for new drilling in the Gulf, the Arctic, elsewhere," John Hocevar of Greenpeace said when the organization began its Gulf investigation. "It's just not okay," said Hocevar. "This is not an acceptable type of collateral damage. " The explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in April 2010 that sank on Earth Day resulted in an initial 5 million barrels of oil pouring into waters off the Gulf Coast.
