  • Good! They have made the big bucks forever. If they can haul it, they need to know how to clean it up. I would have no problem with BP being shut down until this whole thing is cleaned up. Every drop!

  • Instead of criminally charging anyone what about working together to fix the problem.

  • I heard this morning, that the govt wants to step in and TAKE OVER BP!!!! I looked and looked for an article, something in print to verify, but couldn't find anything. THAT worries me, a lot. First because our gov't has NO CLUE what they are doing, and secondly, BP is a foreign-owned company! I'm sure that would go over sooo well with the UK....

  • U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Justice Department has launched a criminal investigation into the massive oil spill spreading through the Gulf of Mexico.

    Holder said the investigation would be comprehensive and aggressive. He promised that the federal officials will prosecute anyone who broke the law.

    In May, a group of senators -- including Environment and Public Works Committee Chair Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California -- sent Holder a letter expressing concerns "about the truthfulness and accuracy of statements submitted by BP to the government in its initial exploration plan for the site," and asking Holder to investigate possible criminal and civil wrongdoing.
