Why on earth did BP expect the top kill plan to work under 5,000 feet of water that kept the mud wet, thin, and flowing out of the damaged riser pipe?
weak prosecution

" We always knew that the relief well was the permanent way to close this "
So why distract us with all these lies and 24 hr /day movies of brown crud shooting out of a broken blow out preventer, The condom idea didn't work, neither did the top hat or the top kill or the hair balls or junk shot. Now the cork idea is sure to fail. Just admit that this thing will spew brown crud for at least 3-4 months or longer that it will take to drill a relief well that could also blow up.
