    Preventing and preparing for spills is also a Coast Guard responsibility, and the
    Coast Guard’s jurisdiction covers vessels; onshore, transportation-related facilities; and
    deepwater ports.8

    Got it now ??? I'd hate to confuse you further.
    So then even though the federal government and 'the two parties' had absolutely nothing to do with a mistake by BP employees, it is still their fault for not properly responding to a mistake made by BP?

    To me, the question is why did BP get exempted, and did other companies receive the same favors? Recent history of our financial crisis pretty much shows that corporations do and will take advantage of lack of oversight. Also, did BP get exempted in exchange for political donations? I'm not claiming to know, but it does raise the question of corruption on both sides of the issue.

    How's this:

    OIL POLLUTION ACT OF 1990
    The OPA of 1990 consolidates and changes existing laws that govern prevention, oil spill liability, and preparedness and cleanup. The law affects pipelines, vessels, oil rigs, piers, and terminals (on shore) that transport, handle, or store crude oil and petroleum products. Many new and important provisions that will affect the DOD fuel facilities are contained in the act, including increased liability for oil spills, more comprehensive oil spill contingency plans, training and drill requirements, better response capability and tougher enforcement. Also, the OPA has strengthened the role of three separate federal agencies: The USCG, the EPA, and the U.S. Department of Transportation (Research and Special Programs Administration).
    They need to polish up the oil spill contingency plans required by this Act.

    I blamed:

    1. The hurricane
    2. People that insisted on living in a city below sea level, although they were warned for at least 25 years what would happen if they got hit by a hurricane.
    3. The people that were too stupid to leave the city when they had the chance.


    Any more questions I can help you with??

    politics is HEADLINES

    and these are a couple killers for the keystone klutzes currently occupying dc:

    "bp exempted from damage study"

    that'd be APRIL, 09

    INTERIOR SEC SALAZAR

    "obama #1 recipient of bp money"

    ouch

    and: "safety award for bp cancelled"

    juxtapose with the white house's weaker warblings---

    we've got "our boot on the neck of bp"

    bp is a "serial abuser"

    it turns out that the "abuser" is EXEMPT from paying any damages over 75 mil

    the most incompetent cast of screw ups america has ever endured
