The setback, which President Barack Obama described as being "as enraging as it is heartbreaking", has the potential to make the Deepwater Horizon disaster the worst environmental catastrophe of modern time. "More oil is leaking in the Gulf of Mexico than at any other time in our history. It means there is more oil than the Exxon Valdez (in Alaska in 1989)," said Carol Browner, the White House energy adviser.

UN Official to Ask US to End CIA Drone Strikes 28 May 2010 A senior United Nations official is expected to call on the United States next week to stop Central Intelligence Agency drone strikes against people suspected of belonging to 'Al Qaeda,' complicating the Obama administration’s growing reliance on that tactic in Pakistan.

Documents Show Early Worries About Safety of Rig

And as far back as 11 months ago, it was concerned about the well casing and the blowout preventer.

BP 'can't guarantee success' in oil crisis

BP 'can't guarantee success' in oil crisis 30 May 2010 Following 41 days of consecutive failure in stopping oil form gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, BP is not optimistic about the new method it intends to employ. BP announced on Sunday that its next plan to stem the oil flow, called "lower marine riser package" operation, involves robot submarines cutting the leaking pipe, placing a cap over it and then pumping the oil to the surface. However, the British company's Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said theoretically the method will work "but obviously we can't guarantee success."

The submarines of Flotilla 7 -- Dolphin, Tekuma and Leviathan -- have visited the Gulf before. But the decision has now been taken to ensure a permanent presence of at least one of the vessels.

Obama administration blocked efforts to stop BP oil drilling before explosion

Obama administration blocked efforts to stop BP oil drilling before explosion By Joe Kishore 10 May 2010 In 2009, the Obama administration intervened to support the reversal of a court order that would have halted offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Obama’s Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who has long had close ties to the industry, specifically cited BP’s Deepwater Horizon operation as one that should be allowed to go forward, according to a group involved in the court case. A Washington DC Appeals Court ruled in April 2009 that the Bush administration’s five-year plan for offshore oil and gas drilling (covering 2007 to 2012) was not based on a proper review of the environmental impact of the drilling. Only days before the ruling, the Obama administration had granted BP a "categorical exclusion," exempting it from an environmental impact study for the Deepwater Horizon project.

Congressmen Propose Pre-Paid Phone Registration to Prevent Terrorism 28 May 2010 Pre-paid phones have a lot of advantages...
