I posted this on a related thread of "videos BP doesn't want you to see, but that thread shifted over to EDIT version and it's gone now. As to the
relevance here, the feds (Navy/CIA) does have deep sea capability and why aren't we at least able to watch video from a public source (I think it
would have to be declassified) from US inteliigence/Naval assets. Moreover, why aren't we employing those assets as a backup contingency if BP
doesn't get this job done?
On the topic of "does the US government have the resources and technology to handle the leak (we should find a better, or accurate word like
"blowout") directly, I think we do. If someone has already posted this, sorry for missing all the posts on this thread, but for one, try this:
Also, various Navy and CIA vessels have been employed with nuclear submarine accidents:
These are examples of older deep sea technology we have had for many years, who knows what's out there now since "full spectrum dominance" has been
the coda of the US military.
Also, other companies like Shell have been handling these types of problems for years, and while they're not knights in shining armor,
environmentally speaking, why not use them as partners in expertise for filling in what the Navy can't do, or doesn't have experience doing
themselves. For that matter, if we hadn't been so belligerent towards Venezuela, we could ask Citgo for help.
Give the top kill a chance today, but after that, we don't need nor can we afford to rely on BP.
