Engineer accuses BP of ignoring damaged oil well safety gear

Engineer accuses BP of ignoring damaged oil well safety gear 18 May 2010 The critical piece of safety equipment that failed to shut down the oil well after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded last month was damaged before the accident, it emerged yesterday.

Despite Pentagon Claims, U.S. Antimissile Intercepts Have Low Success Rate

Despite Pentagon Claims, U.S. Antimissile Intercepts Have Low Success Rate 17 May 2010 ...A new analysis being published by two antimissile critics, at M.I.T. and Cornell, casts doubt on the reliability of the new weapon.

But a re-examination of results from 10 of those apparently successful tests by Theodore A. Postol and George N. Lewis, being published this month, finds only one or two successful intercepts -- for a success rate of 10 to 20 percent.
