    BP and Obama are lying. To add further insult they suggest that the American public is so stupid that we can not estimate the flow of oil and are helpless in stopping it. Of course, scientist and engineers need to see video of the TOTAL damage before we can do that! How about “Transparency Now” by releasing All of the video of the leaking wellhead, preventer and pipe string. TODAY!
    We need a STOP THE Oil FLOW TASK FORCE today that is independent of BP command to stop the flow of oil tomorrow. This ecological and economic genocide should be responded to as a terrorist attack against the American people and our Democracy.

    As American citizen victims, we demand to see ALL the video of the leaking blow-out preventer, leaking wellhead and the string of blown-out pipe with its numerous leaks. The only video BP released last week is of one leak at the end of the pipe far from the leaking wellhead and leaking preventer which is under much more pressure and leaking profusely. If the wellhead and preventer were not leaking, BP would have released video of them. BP’s oil salvage activity at the end of the pipe has been a total science fiasco and is a diversion of attention from the main leaks at the preventer and wellhead.
    Secretive, arrogant and powerful BP refuses to release the videos of the total wellhead damage and President Obama is complicit in the cover-up.
    We have the right to see the total damage and leakage so scientist and engineers can truly evaluate the situation.
    President Obama you have not taken control of the spill, you have allowed secret BP to call the shoots from the beginning to the present. The “best scientific minds in the world” came up with one good Idea to stop the flow according to Mr. Hayward but he will not tell the public what the idea is and is continuing on BP’s present course of failure. BP has their secret program and has not taken positive action with known Marine Pile Driving Technology to stop the oil flow permanently. Furthermore, you have failed to take charge by not stepping in to control BP’s operations with a STOP THE Oil FLOW TASK FORCE of FBI, Corps of Army Engineers, scientist and private marine construction contractors to begin taking positive action to stop the oil flow permanently. Three months from now (hurricane season) the ecological and economic burden will be so great that the United States of America will be catastrophically bankrupt.
    This is right out of Big Oils company playbook: secrecy, stall for time, public relations, litigation protection, maintaining image and owned puppet Congress members to do their bidding.
    BP took home $93 million per day in profits—for a total of $6.1 billion—during the first quarter alone. The approximate $3.5 million in damage claims paid out so far by BP are significantly less than CEO Tony Hayward’s 2009 compensation, estimated at over $4,700,000 by Forbes. Senators in Congress are trying to limit BP’s liability and as proof of BP’s prior oil spill conduct in paying liability; look at the Exxon Valdez ongoing 16 year financial litigation fight!
    Senator Murkowski, in true reality, by limiting liability for Big Oil, are you and the rest of the members of Congress “ready” for the horrendous backlash coming your way from the American People?
    Call your representatives in Congress and demand that the BP videos of the total damage that show the leaks at the well head, preventer and pipe string be released today! We need to stop the oil flow permanently today!

    I don’t care to see the leaks, I simply want them to fix the leaks.

    I’m with you, TN. Why the heck do “WE” deserve to see leaks? Dammit, Jim…I’m a doctor, not a scientist! leave it for the experts, fix it, and move on.

    I was always against offshore oil drilling and this is exactly the nightmare I envisioned. Sure we don’t want to have to depend on foreign oil but let’s use our great minds and find and promote alternate sources of power. BP and other such companies make BILLIONS shooting oil in our veins (so to speak) and they use their power and influence to keep our minds clouded and our addiction strong (continuing the metaphor).

    Speedwalker,

    When you discover another source of energy that does not make us look like a third world country then I think we should stop offshore drilling. Until then All earth worshiping tree hugging idiots should shut up!

    STOP CAP AND TRADE!

    Our gas and electric bills will soar.

    Let me just stop hugging my tree to say – If by third world country you mean more nature and people walking more I am all for it. We could all do getting off our lazy you know whats! If you can tell the oil companies how to make drilling safe and how to avoid disasters then do so otherwise we should both perhaps shut up!

    Regarding Wally & KN: First off, a person can not attempt to fix something unless they can assess the damage and they can not assess the damage without first seeing the damage. On May 18, BP finally revealed the damage to the wellhead and their estimated daily oil flow of 5,000 barrels is really more like 95,000 barrels. Let the “experts” fix the problem is exactly why we are in this mess.
    World Bankers and Big Oil is stronger than the United States of America and have rendered American citizens into helpless victims watching our own ecological and economic genocide attended by a complicit President and Congress. This is Treason to our Democracy! World Bankers and Big Oil are real experts at fixing and managing our lives (some people deserve to be slaves). The New World Order Totalitarian agenda of chaos by World Bankers and Big Oil is on schedule and world governance, by economic default, will be fully enacted by the end of the year.
