The American People STILL HAVE NOT seen the documentation of the Safety Reports from the Minerals Management Services concerning the Deep- water Horizon Rig.

"A federal Mineral Management Service (MMS) spokesperson told CBS News there were 26 government inspections at Deepwater Horizon over the last five years - but there were no "incidents of non-compliance" leaving BP's rig with a spotless record."

The Obama Administration is refusing to release these reports. Why?

Possibly the 700 grand donation for his election? Cover up as usual.

The 22 BILLION is money in a fund controlled by the US Government.

This is a GREAT BOOM for BP in that NOW, plantiffs can be rejected out of hand. If BP had to answer every claim, they would be involved in non-ending litigation.

When the US Government makes a claim against the 22 BILLION they will immediatly get paid. For others, ie US Citizens---good luck.

drop in a bucket? are you kidding? that's the gdp of some nations.
besides.........that is money that bp has given to the government, under the control of an obama designee to manage to help out the citizens affected by the oil spill..........that doesn't include what bp is spending by itself hiring cleanup crews, equipment and materials, scientists, experts, robots, drilling relief wells to tap into the existing blown out well, drilling ships, support vehicles....and the list goes on and on. that doesn't even address the sampling that will be going on for the mext 100 years.

About two weeks ago BP came out and refuse to take claims anymore, not the Government, the start of Shrimp season, these guys are guilty as they come but the cover up will continue. Of course the oil will show up for years.
