Engineers say Interior changed oil report after they signed it

• McClatchy News
A group of engineers and oil experts said Friday that the Interior Department changed the language of a high-profile oil spill report after they'd signed it, falsely signaling their support for a drilling moratorium that they thought went too far.

The new language called for a stronger and wider moratorium on some oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico than the experts thought necessary. In fact, one said Friday, the stronger moratorium might instead increase the risks slightly.

This would be a felony if anyone but government did it.  But I am sure it falls under business as usual.  Hope they kept copies.
