    Rig alarm system partly disabled at time of blast

    Rig alarm system partly disabled at time of blast - Yahoo! News

    An alarm system was partially shut down the day the ill-fated oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 workers and setting off the massive spill, an electronics technician who was aboard told an investigative panel on Friday.

    Later in Washington, the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is investigating the spill, asked Transocean Ltd. for documents concerning safety and the condition of equipment on the rig. Transocean owned the rig, which was being leased by BP PLC. BP is responsible for cleaning up the millions of gallons of oil that have seeped into the Gulf.

    Technician Mike Williams told the panel that the alarm system was turned on to monitor for fire, explosive gas and toxic gas but that its sound and light alarms had been disabled. The Marine Accident Investigation panel was meeting in Kenner. It is made up of Coast Guard members and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement formerly the Minerals Management Service.

    Williams testified that he had asked before about the settings and was told the company didn't want a false alarm waking people at night.
    This article has been submitted as one more case in which the Obama administration is to blame for the failures of the employees at BP. Joe Bidden himself wanted to demonize the people at BP so he shut the alarm off himself and crossed his fingers hoping that a horrible accident would occur. When the accident occurred, Obama would have to put on his cape and Captain Planet the oil spill. This act of bravery would then lead to a 2nd term for Obama.

    - The end!

    Talk about creating a ruckus to claim a ruckus then quell a ruckus...

    First off...AP and Yahoo are what ya might call sympathetic to The One. Second off, there isnt even so much as the first MENTION of The One in the article, nor of a failing of his administration to run the rig. Third off...I dont know of ANYONE other than the same type of dickheads who still claim the US government flew the planes into the twin towers that believe that The One was responsible for the explosion. Where he gets dinged is the dismal failure that has been the follow on corrective actions.
