That BP and the MMS are both negligent in this disaster. And you know you can all yell about the MMS not doing it's job and you're right; that's inexcuseable and 'heads should roll' jobwise.
But IMO that will still never excuse the company for taking advantage of that weakness; knowing full well what the consequences could be.
In response to a U.S. senator's questions
in a letter, BP said it never follows a federal law requiring it to certify that a blowout preventer device would be able to block a well in case of an emergency. The inquiry stemmed from a hearing in May into the Gulf oil spill from the explosion and fire which sank the Deepwater Horizon rig.
But, at the same time, the British oil giant blamed the federal oversight agency, Minerals Management Service, for not asking it to comply with the law.

"Whatever, I'm bored with this topic"
If this topic bores you, feel free to move on. Perhaps you'd prefer to hang out with other petulant youngsters until you have matured enough to tackle a topic of such magnitude.
