If 1% of what this man says is the truth, Well then What an experience!

The Feds did not even bother to talk to this guy, and it is my belief that if Mike Williams did not come forward with this information he would soon be killed.

After listening to this excellent interview by CBS 60 minutes you can clearly piece together what happen and why BP needs to be put down like a rabid dog.

After screwing up on their first drill hole BP drilled in a new location and put extreme pressure on the workers to speed up the never before attempted job.

BP's greed and negligence and the pressure they put on their workers caused a gasket to be broken on a mechanism that was meant to stop the gas and oil from reaching the surface by closing tightly around the drill pipe.

This gasket was destroyed during a test when one of the employees accidentally moved the drill while the gasket was tightly colsed around the drill bit. Evidence of the gaskets destruction was presented to upper management but was disregarded due to pressure of time limits imposed by BP CEO because of Loosing 25 million on the first drill goof.

Watch this interview, listen to Mike Williams's amazing experience and reach your own conclusions.

Part 1.)


Part 3.)


I'll try to find the rest a bit later.

Good post and goes to show that the main ethos with these corporation is money > safety.

Well said.

We need some sort of regulation in place. Someone who is not financially attached to the profitability of the drill needs to be making safety decisions on these rigs.

We've found out the hard way that we cannot trust the oil companies to do it.

Charge the company managers with criminal negligence in the death of 11 people.

Make the company and owners pay every dime for clean up.

Do not vilify all business. That is what the government wants you to do, so that way they can seize more businesses.

Tell me, if this was a Nationalized company, would there be a way to charge anyone?

Would there be a way to seize the assets of the company?

Look beyond the emotions and look at the objective of anyone giving information.

I am sorry this has happened. Those responsible should be brought to JUSTICE.

Not the vilification of business all together. I use to work for a land developer. I stressed to my sub contractors 3 things.

Safety Safety Safety. Then quality then speed. If this is proven to be negligence, the people responsible need to go to jail and the company pay the families and everyone else that will be injured by this. Period.

Other companies do not deserve to be gobbled up by any damn governments.

Yeah who would have thought that regulatory agencies making their money directly from Big oil would let something like this ever happen.

But man this oil spill is really going to screw up fishing and even the very air we breathe.

And their solution is to stick a 4 inch pipe in a 20 inch pipe like it's going to do anything.

BP could give a crap, to them it's just a tax write off at the end of the year. Must be nice to destroy the gulf of Mexico and still make a profit.

To be honest I think this world would be a much better place without public companies.

I don't like public companies. I think they degrade the very idea of what a company should represent.

I'm a big supporter of Private Companies.

As a comparison just look at the quality and safety Nintendo has compared to any other public corporation like Sony or Microsoft has.

Private= responsibility and accountability.

Public=corporate communism, Low quality, no safety, death and destruction.

Thanks for posting these Izzy. I hope this can be fixed. And I hope there is enough of a reason for BP and the rest to start focusing on safety ahead of profit.

I saw the 60 minute episode on tv.

He never said what happened to the woman he abandoned on the platform.

I have problems with what he said about the generators.

He also seems to be involved in first hand conversations about everything but his job title doesn't indicate his "importance".

This may be why officials have ignored his comments.

BP managers need to face criminal charges.

As far as the generators "overrunning" I can see where the methane going into the intakes would cause that, however modern generator systems have electronics that control voltage output. I would guess the explosion must have shorted high voltage wires across the "house" wiring and caused the blowout of lights and computers.

The people with the most liability in this disaster are those who for years have been suppressing and keeping secret new technology that could have long ago stopped the need for use of fossil fuels. If the worlds oceans and us survive this mess, those people need to be hunted down and subjected to the maximum amount of punishment anyone on earth can conceive of.

I would be hard pressed to agree with you more. The over unity energy fiasco is kin to the socialist take over of America.

Dr. Greer's Orion Project gives me hope as I do not think a single person with a working device would ever be allowed to market. So many people working, but not telling the complete tale of their failures and this causes many others to duplicate these same failed projects....sorry, but I have put thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours into over unity and even had a few people accuse me of covering up free energy when I duplicated the rotoverter. Another pile of wasted effort....

Hello Network Dude,

Every company has profits in mind before safety this is just normal. Safety is just a matter of rules and regulations passed due to a companies past mishaps. I'm sure BP will definitely try to not botch another deep water drilling project.

But the funny thing is big oil does not have to worry at all about profit. BP just turned a 6 billion dollar profit. All this pressure for speed and keeping with in time was because BP was loosing millions in mud and other things and yet still turning billions in profit.

There is no way they could not turn a profit and still they try to save pennies.

Accidents happen but when they happen for no reason aside from just being downright stupid when you don't have to then you got a problem.

This was not even a matter of greed, this was corporate negligence finally exposed. Hopefully we still have fish in the sea and air to breath when this is over.
