BP Plugs Leak

If you’ve not already seen it there is a great piece on The Russian Photos Blog today, BP Plugs Leak, Photoshops Entire Gulf Coast.

Of course much of the anti-BP US hysteria is no more than an attempt to deflect attention from the US government’s responsibility for encouraging unsafe oil exploration in the gulf and elsewhere, which has backfired spectacularly, exposing the almost total lack of proper regulation of the oil companies activities.

And it would be hard to find anyone with any understanding of the matter who has any sympathy for the attacks on BP and the Scottish government over the release of the the Libyan who was convicted on very doubtful evidence of planting the bomb on an airline. Perhaps the remaining documents that the US government and the UK government will not allow the Scots to release could make their way to Wiki-leaks and might then help convince those US politicians that there is no case for the Scots to answer.
