Letter to President Barack Obama, Rep. Raul M. Grijalva (D-AZ), January 25, 2011:
I am concerned about the influence BP may have had on the [Oil Budget] report itself. Early drafts of the Oil Budget report list BP official Peter Carragher as an "independent scientist" who reviewed the report [see Attachment C].
His name was removed from later drafts and was not included in the final version of the report [see Attachment D].
I am concerned not only about any changes BP may have suggested to the report that were not publicly disclosed, but about how a report of this magnitude can be considered independent when the company under investigation had a staffer review a pre-publication draft.
