Obama to address the nation on BP oil spill

By Anne E. Kornblut
President Obama will give an address to the nation on the BP oil spill this week, delivering remarks Tuesday night at the end of a two-day trip to the Gulf region.

Obama will map out the government's next steps upon returning to the White House, senior adviser David Axelrod said on NBC's Meet the Press. He is expected to announce plans for requiring BP to create an escrow account holding billions of dollars to be used for compensating victims. "We want to make sure that money is escrowed for the legitimate claims," Axelrod said.

Asked about a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll showing public dissatisfaction with the federal response to the oil spill, now nearly two months old, Axelrod said it cannot be compared to a single-moment event such as a hurricane. "This is an ongoing crisis, much like an epidemic," he said.

Obama is making his fourth trip to the Gulf on Monday, visiting Florida, Mississippi and Alabama and, for the first time since the oil rig exploded and sank, making it an overnight trip.

Gult Oil Disaster Diverts Attention from Domestic Gov't Atrocities:

HOMELAND FUSION CENTER MICROWAVE CELL TOWER WEAPON SYSTEM SILENTLY ASSAULTS, TORTURES, IMPAIRS 'TARGETED' AMERICANS: VETERAN JOURNALIST

• "Dissidents" and "undesirables" also targeted by multi-agency program for financial sabotage; community-based, police-protected, GPS-enabled vigilante stalking and harassment; ideology-driven censorship -- a genocidal purge.

All of those cell towers you see all over America are NOT all for phone calls.

Some of them are TORTURE TOWERS -- part of a nationwide microwave/laser radio frequency "directed energy weapon" system that is being used by operatives of the multi-agency Homeland Security-run "fusion center" network to silently torture, impair, and physically and neurologically degrade the functioning and well-being of extrajudicially, unjustly '"targeted" citizens...

And apparently, this precision-targeted domestic weapon system being used to attack and harm U.S. citizens has been deployed WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF CONGRESS or high state officials.

WHEN WILL CONGRESS PROBE EXTRAJUDICIAL TARGETING AND TORTURE IN AMERICA...

...AND CALL SECRET SERVICE DIRECTOR MARK SULLIVAN AS THE FIRST WITNESS?

BUCKS COUNTY, PA: "Mid-Atlantic States (including D.C.) Centcom of a Fusion Center Gestapo."
