    The commission to investigate the oil spill is lacking in scientific expertise...heavy in politician's and others with subjective approaches to investigating a rare physical incident. The commission should have NO politicians, few lawyers and many engineers with expertise in drilling, deep water operations and the like.

    Obama spill panel big on policy, not engineering - Yahoo! News

    Obama has an agenda, and it ain't to find the truth.

    Why was his first move to send in a SWAT team? Did he suspect EnviroTerrorism?

    I had hoped this was going to be Similar to the Challenger Commission. First figure out the technical cause of failure, second figure out the management/communications causes of failure, and third determine what needs to be done to prevent such failures in the future.

    If the article posted is accurate, they seem to want to skip to step 3. my fear is this will turn into an "OIL BAD" puff piece that comes to the conclusion that the only way to avoid these accidents is to not drill at all, and come to said conclusion based on pre determined politics, and not the results of the investigation.

    Didn't Obama say at his press conference that he was still totally clueless as to the causes?
