Clinton: Future drilling can't risk billions in clean-up

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weighed in on the Gulf oil spill Friday, saying that any future offshore drilling "can't be done at the risk of having to spend billions of dollars cleaning up these spills."

In an interview with David Gregory set to air on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday morning, she said, "the president has ordered the departments that deal with this -- Homeland Security, Interior, Environmental Protection, Defense -- to all immediately not only do everything possible to mitigate the effects of this spill, but to try to come up with recommendations going forward."

But, she continued: "The first order of business ... is to try to get this spill under control -- which has been, as you, know very difficult -- and to prevent further damage to the coastline along Louisiana, to the fishing waters, to the wildlife."

"I think it does raise questions which the president has said have to be answered," she said, describing offshore oil drilling as a matter of "national security" for its potential to lessen dependence on foreign oil.

"It has to be done safely. It can't be done at the risk of having to spend billions of dollars cleaning up these spills," she said.

The technology is available to have prevented this disaster.
But, this is where we are.
The best minds should be working on a plan to minimize the long term damage. Tomorrow, we will sit with coffee and bust nuts. The fire and the death are water under a bridge.

URGENT to Secretary Clinton (staff, pls. fwd.):

COULD A CLASSIFIED U.S. DOMESTIC WEAPON SYSTEM BE PLAYING A ROLE -- FOR GOOD OR FOR ILL -- IN THE GULF OIL SPILL DISASTER?


Do POTUS, VPOTUS, SecState, and other high administration officials, know that a "Multi-functional Microwave Radio Frequency Directed Energy Weapon System" deployed on cell towers across America, and in other nations as well, could play a role in the Gulf oil spill disaster...

...or perhaps IS playing a role, in some capacity?

This technology can ALTER THE WEATHER, ALTER ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS, ALTER WIND PATTERNS.

The U.S. Patent, held by Raytheon, a document that USED to be available at http://freepatentsonline.com/7629918.html states that this technology can be used to alter "atmospheric conditions."

This reporter just tried to access the patent, and got a message that is was "not currently available."

Why is that patent not available? Is there a cover-up afoot? Of WHAT?

Someone in the White House should be addressing this, STAT.

Also, read how THIS may tie into this "matrix:"

Secretary (bring me a cup of coffee, two creams no sugar) Clinton thinks that oil slicks is part of her domain.
