BP’s Fake Cleanup: Worker quits, says “They told us not to dig”; “Forbidden” to clean beneath surface when oil is buried 12 inches deep (VIDEO)

Former Oil Worker Says Cleanup Just For Show, WKRG Channel 5 CBS Pensacola, June 24, 2010:

Former oil clean-up worker Candi Warren says… the tide and surf buried oil overnight. But they were forbidden to dig it up. … She said she was told to only clean the surface of the sand, that this is all cosmetic. …

Warren says she believes money is being wasted on the crews and says “At some point the real clean-up will have to begin, but I’m afraid the money will be gone.”

She used a shovel and dug down six, eight, maybe twelve inches into the sand to show us the layers of oil close to the shoreline.

WKRG Reporter: She became concerned when she was instructed to remove oil from only the very surface of the sand though overnight, oil had become buried underneath sand — and is still there.
