Whistleblower Switches Sides, Spills Story on BP Press Blockade
Adam Dillon, once a security contractor hired by BP to shoo reporters off of public beaches, is now blowing the whistle on BP.
Dillon was interviewed by New Orleans station WDSU. He told of being fired by BP after he took pictures of equations showing how dispersants were being used in the Gulf. He said BP detained him and interrogated him before the abrupt firing.
