    It seems the Coast Guard did not follow proper fire fighting procedures, or even its own rules, by attempting to put out the fire on Deepwater Horizon. This may have resulted in the sinking of the platform, and the breaking of the riser pipe that spewed all that oil into the Gulf.

    and THIS kind of bullshit is EXACTLY why Obama is a grand standing douche bag for "demanding" $20B from BP before an investigation was even done. Will they return the money if it is found that the Coast Guard is liable?

    Our "Shallow Water Sailors" will never be blamed for this... At least not until BP has gone out of business.

    Yes, how dare I want the blame properly assigned. Let's just assume BP is at fault, hell they got lots of money after all.

    So, let me get this straight. If you catch your kitchen on fire and the local fire department makes the fire worse and your neighbors house burns down, you have no problem paying for your neighbors house?

    All this shows is the Coast guard fucked up fighting the fire. That does not mean they caused the initial accident or were responsible for the questionable practices that lead to the Blow out. I do not see how you would think that this would mean BP is not liable anymore Conhog.

    Our Coast guard is not equipped or trained to fight that kind of fire, yet they risked life and limb to do so. Cut em some slack.
