    They might.

    If for example, those records show that the State of LA was in bed with BP and signed off on that rig's lack of safety equipment, then LA might find itself as a codefendent rather than a plantiff in the lawsuits that are sure to follow.

    And given that LA's government has been in bed with the Petrocracy for decades, that's not such a farfetched possibility.

    "•President Obama received the largest single contribution from BP of all presidential candidates ($77,000) in 2008.
    •Since the spill, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has OK'd as many as 26 drilling approvals for BP using the same "categorical exclusions" that eliminated the need for a detailed review of the Deepwater Horizon and the Atlantis.

    But of all these disturbing factoids, perhaps none is more troubling than the simple fact the Obama administration, which ran and was elected on the notion of transparency, seems to be aiding and abetting a crime of disinformation and corporate obfuscation. I am in direct contact with several groups — journalists, scientists, nonprofit organizations — and all have reported the same thing ... it is next to impossible to gain the access desperately needed for independent monitoring and verification of damages in the region."

    I was thinking Wilson in honor of PC's predictable response and fulfillment of my e-prophecy.
