What? (I'll say it again) WHAT?
Corporate policy and decisions do not flow from the bottom up, they flow from the top down. A janitor at BP can not and does not dictate drilling and
safety procedures (in fact, they would probably get fired trying).
Who caused this and who is ultimately responsible does not need to be the same individual. The dude that decided to take shortcuts in the drilling of
this well caused this, while the CEO is responsible for allowing it to happen.
Chop off both their heads to insure THEY can't do that ever again. It's only too heads fer crying out loud. CHOP CHOP. I doubt few if any would
shed any tears if we did so, and doing so would establish a precedent for what will happen to those that ever allow something like this to ever happen
again. I mean, good gawd, people have been canned for a whole lot less. How many have gotten the boot simply for showing up at work late .. and yet
those that caused this catastrophe are still working for BP? That is so damn suspicious, as if maybe they are keeping those responsible under their
employ in order to keep them silent.
