BP Greedy?

Yesterday CNN provided details from five survivors of the explosion on 20 April 2010 causing the destruction of the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform and the subsequent devastation caused by the oil leak.

The survivors’ account indicates that BP’s greed driven short cuts to dealing with critical problems aboard the Deepwater Horizon for over nine months; including forcing the rig’s chief mechanic to use a cost/time saving procedure he was uncomfortable with on the day of the explosion.

Read it (and watch it) yourself; draw your own conclusions… but remember, CNN is not a liberal news source — and if they’re pointing fingers at big business it’s either because big business is undeniably at fault, or that’s where the ratings are (don’t underestimate the greed at CNN).
