New BP Report

Congress has found that BP bypassed industry standards, ignored advice and concerns from its own employees and contractors, shot from the hip with untested technology, and cut other corners, all for economic benefit.  Some savings they’re looking at now, eh?  Good article about it in various papers today.  Tonight the president will be speaking about the latest oil-spill news.  I’ll be interested to see if the US Attorney General is still considering criminal charges.

  2. What was the verdict on whether or not the US Attorney General is still considering criminal charges against BP on this? I started to watch the coverage, and the President’s “handlers” have decided he needs to sound “tougher” rather than “smart,” so they have inserted all kinds of bellicose terms and phrases into his speeches. I can’t watch; it feels un-authentic to the man I voted for. It’s image over substance. I think he needs new speech writers and coaches; but what was the verdict?

  3. i’m waiting for more info myself…
