    Good, but it will still leak. Live shots shows it gushing out of a lower part of the BOP, below the cap.

    They finally revealed the gas pressure they were expecting inside the cap to see if it works, 8,000 to 9,000 PSI...

    To give you some idea of what that means, try to stop your spurting garden hose with your finger... and that's only around 90 psi... a 100 times less.

    washingtonpost.com: "Gulf Oil Spill Response Mismanaged, Presidential Panel Says"

    Spill Panel Finds U.S. Was Slow to React - WSJ.com

    obama's own commission, criticized upon its creation for comprising too many activists and politicos and not enough technical expertise

    the response to the spill exposed a white house either "not fully competent or not fully candid with the american people"

    the president's own spill panel also takes the task force (allen, browner, salazar) to task for its claim, after the cap was finally sealed, that 3/4 of the damage was "gone"

    an "over optimism may have affected the scale and speed" of response

    "despite acknowledged inaccuracies and better methodologies" of measuring the exhaust, the white house stubbornly stuck with numbers which the panel LOL'd when the white assured us they were "peer reviewed"

    nothing none of us didn't personally witness just a few months ago, another epic example of utter incompetence

    still, it's somewhat surprising to see it put in writing

    and from such a source

    You really should keep up with the media, not just throw political mud and hope it sticks.

    The fault was BPs because the last leak fix showed they could just pull the BOP and replace it.

    Why they didn't do the same thing with the first BOP and prevent the huge oil spill, the start is still a mystery.

    They didn't pull the BOP and replace it. They put another one on top of the old one. It's also not that much of a mystery why they didn't do that in the first place. BP is a bureaucratic nightmare of a place, and that was before the federal government moved in. Decisions are made at the pace of a dead snail.
