Former BP Contractor: BP’s “Bottom Line Is Just About Money”

HeadlineJul 12, 2010

A former BP contractor has accused the oil company of focusing on its profits more than cleaning up the oil spill. Up until recently, Adam Dillon served as a liaison between the media and the BP security contractors. In that position, Dillon reportedly rebuffed attempts by reporters to observe cleanup operations in Grand Isle, Louisiana. Dillon was fired after taking photos that he believes were related to the use of dispersants and to the cleanup of the oil. Adam Dillon spoke recently to the New Orleans station WDSU.

Adam Dillon: “There are some very great, hardworking individuals in there. But the bottom line is just about money. And there are some very cutthroat individuals, and they’re not worried about cleaning up that spill as it is…I will never have loyalty to this company. I will always have loyalty to my country. And my country comes first. And what this company is doing to this country right now is just wrong.”
