You are not Authorized to See These Pictures of the Oil Spill, Citizen... Do Not Look!

Preface: The title is a parody of the fact that the government has effectively made it a felony to take pictures of oiled wildlife.
While most of these pictures have previously been published by the mainstream media - and presumably will remain publicly available - that assumption is not 100% certain. By way of analogy, the government sometimes reclassifies as top secret information which was previously declassified.

More importantly, while some of these photos have been widely seen, most have not, and I have never seen them rounded up in a single page before.

goddamn unkle sam and his money worshipping , power mongering minions and lobbyists he is always willing to take a payoff from...
