I'd get these sort of quizzical, stupefied faces staring back at me. Not any more. Here is your proof:
Kelly Cobiella reports that a CBS News team was threatened with arrest by Coast Guard officials in the Gulf of Mexico who said they were acting under the authority of British Petroleum.
So, here we have a private company, BP, utilizing the military forces of its host company, the Coast Guard, to do their policing for them.

Still think I'm nuts?
