    not in the bomber release, but everything evil isn't against the law either. It was totally dishonorable and fits the exact sterotype many people have of large businesses like BP. willing to do anything for more money, no matter how corrupt and immoral

    I for one haven't said they were honorable. What I've said is they have been demonized into bankruptcy and that leaves we the taxpayer to pick up the tab.. cutting off your nose to spite your face has never been smart.

    Business is business, unless you have a business you wouldn't understand it. No laws were broken and what you call evil, dishonorable, immoral and corrupt are simply your opinions.
