You're not too aware of what's going on at home, are you? A crucial Halliburton-manufactured valve was faulty and apparently badly installed, and BP knew about it, pleaded "no contest" to negligence and paid a $4 billion fine. You wrote "The deck of a well is no place for sissies". Of course it is not, as it's risky and hard work. BUT, risk is risk. BP knew there was a problem, yet did not shut down the platform for repairs to valve and put the entire crew's lives at UNNECESSARY risk. Yes, there is risk, but not that kind of risk where you know the whole thing may blow up and still just stand by. Remember, BP pleaded guilty and paid a hefty fine. Pleaded no contest to avoid jail. How come you and none of your right wing birther buddies didn't ask for heads to roll as is no doubt correctly asked for Benghazi.<quoted text>
The deck of a well is no place for sissies. What were our Federal Inspectors looking at when on the well? That's always been my question. Also, the industry needs a proven method for controlling a blowout in deep water. This is a must.
Ok, let's have your diatribe now.
