I don't think BP is going to be part of the solution.  I am ready for the US government to pay Exxon or the Saudis or someone else to fix it.  Before we can get rid of them, we are going to have to point a finger at them.


Templar,


I got the 750 to Exxon's 1 from the Congressional hearing.  It was brought out by one member of congress (I cannot remember who).

Things to ponder about selling of shares of BP before the explosion. Yell


BP chief Tony Hayward sold shares weeks before oil spill


The chief executive of BP sold £1.4 million of his shares in the fuel giant weeks before the Gulf of Mexico oil spill caused its value to collapse.

Tony Hayward cashed in about a third of his holding in the company one month before a well on the Deepwater Horizon rig burst, causing an environmental disaster.

Mr Hayward, whose pay package is £4 million a year, then paid off the mortgage on his family’s mansion in Kent, which is estimated to be valued at more than £1.2 million.


AND:


Goldman Sachs beat oil spill debacle with BP shares sell-off


Goldman Sachs sold more than half of its stock in troubled energy giant BP before the Gulf oil spill in April.

Those show that between January and March of this year, Goldman sold 4.9 million shares across three separate funds — 58% of the bank's total holding.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Both links have more information.


I do believe more and more will come out over time.

Whoa Stardove.  That is definitely food for thought.

Okay, Stardvoe and Appy:


If it is food for thought, what are you thinking about this?

It seems like they may have known something was going to blow.  Maybe someone knew that too many corners were being cut and that disaster was imminent.
