    Mr. Obama said SWAT teams were being dispatched to the Gulf to investigate oil rigs and said his administration is now working to determine the cause of the disaster.
    Man if this turns out to be environmental terrorism then all bets are off. The rig blows the day before earth day... please!

    If this turns out to be environmental terrorism, I'd be surprised.

    Who benefits from it?

    Nobody far as I can tell.

    That I rather doubt.

    ELF doesn't really have access to the well head at bottom of the Gulf.

    This kind of accident was inevitable. Sooner or later it was bound to happen. When this is all sorted out, like the Exxon Valdez, I think we will find that safety measures that should have been mandatory, were not. And, since they were not mandatory, BP saved money by not putting them into place.

    We have vast areas of our nation thourghly mucked up from the use of coal, we will now have hundreds of miles of coast mucked up with oil, both in the Gulf and in Alaska. In Alaska, only a few people see the damage, in the Gulf, millions of people will be immediatly affected.

    I think that 'Drill, baby, Drill' is going to be a loser of a slogan, now.

    Wouldn't that be totally self-defeating if they want to protect the planet?

    Then again, nobody said ELF was full of geniuses.

    We have got to have the oil or we die economically. This should have never happened. Blowout preventors are not a new fangled technology; they have been around since the twenties and the thirties. This smells like either sabotage or incompetence.

    Why did it take Bo so long to respond? This is Obama's Katrina, one hundred percent. He has no one else to share the blame with.
