DOI IG says White House changed drilling moratorium report

browner The White House office of Carol Browner changed a DOI report justifying the moratorium.

Ms. Browner is Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change. A Department of the Interior Inspector General's report says changes to the executive summary of a "30 Day Report" that followed the Deepwater Horizon incident made it appear that a group of industry experts had "peer reviewed" and approved a recommendation that a drilling moratorium be imposed.The version of the report made available to the public says an unnamed member of Ms. Browner's staff made the misleading changes.

Eight experts made it very public, and very clear that they did not support the moratorium. A number of Senators and House members asked the IG report.
