I found this article on one of my aggregator sites (Google News, I think). Ben Heineman asks a good question: Who should investigate the BP incident in the Gulf? My problem with the whole thing: I don't trust anyone right now to get to any reasonable solutions. So far there is plenty of evidence of complicity for Transocean, BP, Haliburton, and all involved government agencies. Already we have seen the three companies try mightily to push the blame off onto each other. HuffingtonPost has this article which indicates the government's complicity in this: fewer inspections and missing paperwork. Last night 60 Minutes devoted 2 segments to the disaster which shed a very negative light on all three companies. BP's major goal was to get that phase of the drilling over with as quickly as possible and damn the consequences. Problems with that 'blow-out preventer' should have halted the drilling at least three times--but those problems were minimized an ignored. BP insisted on a speedier (but much riskier) strategy to cap the well which failed and, coupled with the faulty blow-out preventer, led directly to the disaster.
