IT'S STILL SPILLING AT A RATE OF 10-MILLION GALLONS A DAY. THE CORPORATE-STATE MEDIA STOPPED REPORTING IT. TOO BAD CNN WHOSE STORY IS ABOVE HAS NEWS AMNESIA.

Oh, it was a struck pipe? Then it was no one's fault. At least anyone but the oil company. Even though the oil drillers were sharing drugs, prostitutes and expensive hotel rooms with the people from Minerals Management(part of the Interior Department under Bush appointee Gail Norton) and all paid for by the American taxpayer
it had nothing to do with the lack of government oversight, the lack of enforcement of the rules.

Heck no. It was an accident.
Could have happened to anyone.
