"If U.S. officials had followed up on a 1994 response plan for a major Gulf oil spill, it is possible that the spill could have been kept under control and far from land. "
Let's see. Who as President in 1994?
Who didn't say ANYTHING in public for the first 9 days of the oil spill
Whose fault was it that the government failed to respond in a timely manner?
1/2 a guess.
Any day now I expect the main stream media to pick up on this tidbit and take it front page.
