Maybe Halliburton can pay for any damages with the money they stole in Iraq.
... or the money they made trading with Iran through off shore entities!
and maybe they can bring back some of the truck drivers they murdered in Iraq:
Criminal Organization supported by a corrupt and criminal political Bush regime.
From reading what you posted, it seems it was BP and Halliburton. If you hire someone to do a job and they screw it up and you are informed about the screwup and do nothing about it, you are just as responsible if that screwup results in catastrophe.
They we're also supported during the Clinton regime, and currently are supported by the Hussein Regime. Not to mention about 70 other governments.
All they do is provide oil to whoever wants it, which is everybody.
Of course, I'm sure you don't use any oil at all.
Actually, the results showed that BP only reported the results of one of four tests, and it is not clear if they used language that clearly stated the cement was unstable. Not to mention that Halliburton made the stuff in the first place.
Granted. But if you hire someone and they screw up and don't tell you and it results in a catastrophe, you are still responsible. You may have someone to share that responsibility with, but it doesn't let you off the hook. You are responsible for the work your contractors do.
actually that article and the report it is based on said no such thing.
It said that the accident could not have happened without a failure of the cement in the well casing, but it didn't assign primary responsibility, and it also made the same point about the Blowout preventer's failure.
You should read your sources before you post.
