All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Gulf Oil Spill - Whose Fault Is It Any Way?

When the analysis is finally done and all the participants are fully investigated it will show that the BP is not the only culprit at fault for the Gulf oil spill. Analysis will show that the EPA and Federal regulators whose exploratory restrictions pushed oil developers into mile-deep water are at fault as much as the developers themselves. If this accident had occurred on land or in a few hundred feet of water the well would have been capped the same day it blew. An investigation will also show that the environmental lobby made the situation worse by stopping the burn-off of oil in the absence of an impact study.
