There should be plenty of those experts all over the news 24/7, but there aren’t any at all.

It’s almost like someone doesn’t want people talking about this.

I wonder why...

re: but there aren’t any at all

That's what makes me curious. Airline crash, volcano eruption, tsunami, you name the disaster and the airwaves and bandwidth are overrun with experts. Not this time. I hate it when circumstances start encouraging thoughts of conspiracy and sabotage. I have never heard what caused the fire that started all this.

I also find it very strange that we've not heard, to the best of my knowledge, from a single survivor of the event. I would expect all sorts of written and broadcast interviews of those who were on board. Not a word. No stories of where they were on the rig, what they were doing, how they learned of the event, nothing.

Seems to me if you have what it takes to get a totally unprepared and unqualified person elected to the office of the POTUS, then it shouldn't be out of your league to cause a massive oil drilling event.

Heard one on Fox News. It was very technical, and I did not understand it all. The expert said that someone was not paying enough attention to the gauges.

Once the equipment on the bottom is secured, certain tools are withdrawn, and there is an automatic shutoff valve. The shutoff valve can’t work at present, because it is blocked by something.
