No hard evidence yet, but lot's of compelling circumstantial evidence.
Let's see, there are reports of BP Chief Tony Hayward selling 1/3 of his BP stock a month before the explosion.
Halliburton acquisitioned Boots & Coots, an oil cleanup company, 8 days before the explosion.
Goldman Sachs dumps $275 million of BP stock 20 days prior.
Interesting to note, the current chairman of Goldman Sachs International Peter Sutherland was, as of 3 months ago, BP's chairman.
A BP official document says this - "ROV identified undocumented modifications to the hydraulic control system - the extent of these modifications is
unknown at this time".
*edit to add - this is on page 37 if you're interested*
As far as I know, this is pretty much the bulk of the evidence pointing to an inside job. I may have missed something, and without my coffee, I
I strongly doubt that BP is involved in any conspiracy. This disaster is murdering that company just as it is the GOM. Their stock value is
plummeting. But Goldman Sachs looks very fishy. Even though the $270 million stock dump is only .5% of their total holdings, it was 44% of their BP
stock. At the time, BP was doing well - most business was in buying BP shares, not selling. They couldn't have sold more than 44% without raising red
I'm still not really sure how I feel about the stock evidence. But that last link about undocumented modifications being discovered, could
potentially be some actual physical evidence. I hadn't even heard about that until I looked it up just now. If this WAS deliberate, I want to see
some heads roll.
