Aren't you glad Obama always trusts BP?

Mark Bly, BP's lead investigator into the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, told an independent panel of experts Sunday that the company's internal probe has limitations.

Bly, head of safety and operations for BP PLC, said a lack of physical evidence and interviews with employees from other companies limited BP's study.

Bly was appearing before a National Academy of Engineering committee on Sunday.

The explosion aboard BP’s Gulf rig in April killed 11 people and released 172 million gallons of oil.

BP's study said eight separate failures led to the oil rig accident.

The report said BP and other companies were mainly responsible, but the conclusions were made without examining the drilling rig or a key piece of equipment, the blowout preventer.

Obama trusted (without verifying) the accuracy of BP's drilling permit application. We know how that turned out.

Next, Obama trusted BP to investigate the oil disaster. We now know how that turned out.

Fool us once, shame on BP.

Fool you twice, you must be Obama.

By the way - - do you think this has anything to do with the fact that Obama received more campaign cash from BP than any other U.S. politician during the most recent election cycles?
