After watching Tony Hayward's testimony before congress for most of the day, I am convinced that in the end, they will attempt to blame one or more
of the 11 dead BP workers for the disaster.
Tony Hayward seemed to answer almost every question posed to him by stating that it is too early to make any determinations as to what went wrong on
the Deepwater Horizon due to the fact that investigations are still ongoing. Over and over again, he repeated this assertion.
Just knowing that Eric Holder is investigating the incident for any evidence of criminal wrongdoing or willful misconduct is enough to put everyone at
BP into the CYA mode. After reviewing their past history regarding the Texas City refinery explosion and various other BP accidents, not to mention
the numerous citations issued by OSHA, I'm pretty confident that BP officials know that attempts will be made to criminally prosecute those
responsible for causing this accident.
Well, It's my belief and prediction that in the end, BP will make an attempt to place the ultimate blame for the disaster on one or more of the dead
workers in order to evade prosecution themselves. If the guy that caused the disaster is already dead then there is no need for further prosecution,
IMO, this has been their plan all along. A lot like airline crashes, if the pilot survives the crash then it's more than likely that a determination
will be made that a mechanical malfunction caused the crash, but if he dies, then the door has been opened to blame the crash on "pilot error."
It's much easier to blame the worker when he is dead and unable to testify in his own defense.
Anyway, that's my prediction. Does anyone out there agree with me or am I just being cynical?
