Now at least FIVE, yes 5 leaks!

Well they ADMIT to 5 leaks... you know it's worse.

-- Five leaks in and around BP's well are more like "drips" and aren't yet reason to worry, said retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the national incident commander. He extended testing of the experimental cap by another day, which means the oil will remain shut in. Seepage two miles from BP's oil cap is coming from another well, he said.

So they ADMIT to five leaks... what is it in reality? And are they really ``drips`` or is it BS like almost EVERYTHING BP said since it all began? Find the answer within your conscience.

Thought all the seepage was natural, how much more are they going to admit to stuff.

Now this is progress!!!

Gone from 5 (000 barrels) to 5(leaks).

Only small ones ... we promise.

nice catch Vitchilo!

There are probably more! The BS they are telling us about these are old wells that are leaking is just that, BS!! The leaks are coming from the pressure building related to Deep water well!

If they are "new leaks" how come they were not leaking before Deep water took place?

Yes I'm afraid the saga continues...

My conscience says never trust BP.

Hope this relief well works, the cap really isn't nearly as important. If that relief well goes deep enough it may stop all these.*fingers crossed*

I had a thought on this whole thing and the hydrate buildup. What if they're not re-opening the well because they can't? It's a real possibility that the main valves could be frozen over - in a manner of speaking - by the buildup internally.

If they know there's that much pressure down there, why cap it in the first place? Why not just put a "stovepipe" of sorts around the whole thing, and then collect the oil at the top once it comes out of the "chimney?" Same thing as what drilling the well would have accomplished...
