Obama administration quashed the truth

The AP reports:

The Obama administration blocked efforts by government scientists to tell the public just how bad the Gulf oil spill could become and made other missteps that raised questions about its competence and candor during the crisis, according to a commission appointed by the president to investigate the disaster.

(Via Instapundit.)

And, since they both also relate to this administration’s dishonesty regarding the oil spill, let’s remember the two separate times in which the administration lied about obtaining peer review of its oil spill assessments, and let’s also remember how the administration repeatedly blocked media access to the spill.

UPDATE: The Washington Post has a good story on the commission’s report.
