Tony Hayward's Greatest Hits; BP's Well Partner Says Disaster 'Preventable'

News


Here's a charming video showing all the times Tony Hayward said "I don't recall" or "Not my fault" or "Sorry, can't hear you!" during his testimony before Joe Barton's Oil Industry Fan Club on Thursday. Seems like just yesterday when people would put up all kinds of "mashups" or whatever, about Current Events, but only Bloomberg News has a video now, so apologies for the drawn-out introduction.

And the Washington Post just posted this story with the view from BP's partner on the Gulf well. Guess what? The partner company says BP was "reckless" and the whole disaster was "preventable." Good to know!

It was the first time since the blowout in the Gulf of Mexico that Anadarko Petroleum had given its view of the accident, and its chief executive, Jim Hackett, did not mince words. In a statement, Hackett said he was "shocked" by information that has emerged from investigations of the accident. He said it "indicates BP operated unsafely and failed to monitor and react to several critical warning signs during the drilling of the Macondo well."

The police have clearly failed to stop the scourge of black kids selling water to thirsty people, so your average law-abiding, permit-respecting white lady has no choice but to take matters into her own (did we mention they were white?) hands. You might call her a busybody gone power mad or a simple tool of racist micoaggression, but we just call her "Permit Patty."
