Further to my post "News from Geneva: Transocean "On Trial" for 2010 Gulf Oil Spill", I have printed in full the 31 October 2011 article from Wake Up World about the mysterious deaths of individuals linked to the BP oil spill. Thank you to Wake Up World for permission to print this troubling article, which begins with an explanatory video. Wake Up World presents alternative news and information, "waking up one soul at a time".
Here is the article:
In the last year and a half at least 10 experts, whistleblowers and BP connected individuals have died under mysterious circumstances.
This information was widely reported in the below April 10th, 2011 video which at the time listed 9 deaths and 3 imprisonments, disappearances, or attempted assassinations.
Now, another BP oil spill connected individual has mysteriously died, moving the number of oil spill connected deaths to at least 10.
Most recently George Thomas Wainwright, a BP ROV pilot was supposedly killed in a freak shark attack in Australia on the 22nd October 2011.
While this is obviously a very sad story, it may have a more sinister meaning considering the fact that at least 10 other BP and oil spill related whistleblowers or experts have died since the oil spill that saw a horrendous amount of openly toxic dispersant sprayed throughout the gulf.

“You and your fellow Committee members may wish to require BP to explain what action was ultimately instituted to cease the practice of falsifying BOP tests at BP Prudhoe drilling rigs.
