The leak, a mile under water, was triggered by an explosion on an offshore rig on April 20 that killed 11 workers and ruptured BP's well, unleashing a torrent of crude into the Gulf of Mexico.
Hayward's opening statement to the hearing was interrupted by a protester with her hands painted black. "You need to be charged with a crime, Tony. You need to go to jail," she yelled and was hustled out by police.
"This oil is already into the wetlands and more is coming up every day. You cannot clean it out of there," John Hocevar, a marine biologist with Greenpeace, told Reuters in Louisiana. "The impact of the spill is going to be felt for decades."

I saw highlights of this hearing. In the end, I was rooting for Hayward.
Look at who was questioning this guy....Henry Waxman, Bart Stupak, John Dingle, Edward Markey.
Stupak is already scheming to use the $20 billion BP is setting aside to fund HEALTHCARE.
Go Hayward, and go BP! After seeing this dog and pony show, I'm rooting for you!
