I agree with you man! Just though this was pretty blatent since most of the time they have not committed to when it'll be stopped or whether anything they are trying will work.
Just more lies to add to the pot though and i guess we'll all see the "trickle" come Monday or Tuesday
NEW ORLEANS | While BP is capturing more oil from its blown-out well with every passing day, scientists on a team analyzing the flow said Tuesday that the amount of crude still escaping into the Gulf of Mexico may be considerably greater than what the government and the company have claimed.

GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) -- A top BP executive says the company hopes to be capturing virtually all the oil leaking from the Gulf floor soon.
Chief operating officer Doug Suttles said on Tuesday in Gulf Shores, Ala., that the flow should decrease to "a relative trickle" soon.
BP later sought to clarify his comments. It says that even though the company is optimistic it can make measurable progress in the next week in reducing the flow. And it says it will take more time to reach the point that the spill amounts to a trickle.

The article is more than a week old, so where's that trickle?
