Thousands of dead fish surface at mouth of Mississippi River

Thousands of fish have turned up dead at the mouth of Mississippi River, prompting authorities to check whether oil was the cause of mass death, local media reports said Monday.

The fish were found Sunday floating on the surface of the water and collected in booms that had been deployed to contain oil that leaked from the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the Times-Picayune reported.

"By our estimates there were thousands, and I'm talking about 5,000 to 15,000 dead fish," St Bernard Parish President Craig Taffaro was quoted as saying in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Excuse me, but isn't this the same Gulf President Obama just assured the American people was clean, safe, and free from pollutants, and that the seafood from this region was safe to eat?!?

Honestly, the whole world knows when this man is lying: he opens his mouth...and words come out of it!!!!!!
