    So the Obama Administration that did nothing to regulate the original drilling of the well, who waived Environmental Impact studies wants to regulate everything involved in stopping and cleaning up the spill to the point where they postponed Louisiana from building protective berms, and sending out cleanup barges. People can you see now that this president wants to systematically harm the ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico where it can do the most harm against one of his adversaries state called Louisiana. Don't forget Mississippi, Alabama and Florida who are all Republican controlled. There is no reason for this delay and the OIL STILL FLOWS.



    BP Testing Delayed on Gulf Oil Fix - CBS News


    CBS/AP) BP is delaying critical tests on a new well cap designed to finally stop the flow of oil in the Gulf of Mexico after government officials said more analysis was needed on the plan.

    BP engineers were scheduled to start slowly shutting off valves on the 75-ton metal stack of pipes and valves, aiming to stop the flow of oil for the first time in three months. A series of preliminary steps were completed, including mapping the seafloor.

    National Incident Commander Thad Allen said in a statement Tuesday night the process "may benefit from additional analysis" that would be performed overnight and Wednesday. He did not say when the tests would start.

    The decision was reached after Allen met with federal officials, scientists and geologists.

    And Also, way to go Stephen Chu, Obamas Sec of Energy:


    Oil Still Spilling as Rig Test Is Delayed:

    On its Web site, BP said in a statement that the test had been postponed after a meeting with Energy Secretary Stephen Chu “and his team of scientific and industry experts.”

    So what units did you serve with in the 25th ID?

    I mean, by now you've at least had enough time to research an adequate lie.

    Are you claiming he never served in the military, if so what does that have to do with this thread? And while we are on the subject what branch did YOU serve in?

    Has it now become clear that the Obama Administration wants oil leaking all over the Gulf.

    His folks have been the biggest roadblock to progress in cleaning up the spill all along.

    THIS turn of events is ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    I'm horrified, and I mean that, Literally.

    Just when you think that SOMETHING is FINALLY being done,

    something that could be a workable solution,

    it's brought to a screeching halt,

    and, you're right ~

    I am now CONVINCED, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that THIS is a DOWNRIGHT Attack on America by the very people we PAY to protect us.

    My God, how can this be allowed to continue???

    Remember....this was merely an exploratory well....it wasn't intended to be a big producer.

    Maybe they ignored the dangers and drilled anyway.

    I don't trust BP and I especially don't trust the Obama Administration in this one single bit.

    No matter what happens, Retired is going to find fault with it, and it will be our President's fault.

    He, and many others on this board are completely bent that this administration forced BP to put money in escrow so the Gulf residents that are adversely affected by this can be sure to get timely compensation. Unlike those whose lives and livelyhoods were damaged by the Exxon Valdez spill.

    They seem to believe that a more equitable solution would be to charge them for the oil that washes up on their beaches.
