Wait Long Enough and You'll Get Blamed for the BP Spill, Too

GULF OF MEXICULPABILITY

A report released yesterday by Transocean, the owner of the ill-fated Deepwater Horizon, squarely pins the blame for last year's explosion that killed 11 people in the Gulf of Mexico on BP...

...two months after BP filed a lawsuit laying the blame on Transocean...

...having also blamed Halliburton for the accident...

...who says they're not at fault...

...and points the finger at BP...

...which eventually passed the blame buck to Cameron International's defective blowout preventer...

...shifting the onus off the Republicans, who were blamed for the spill by the Democrats...

...then turned right around and blamed the Democrats back...

...though a presidential commission unquestionably blamed BP, Transocean, and Halliburton...

...while the British insisted America was to blame...

...as America said the blame rested on England's shoulders...

...and the US Department of Justice blamed Anadarko Petroleum Corp., a 25% partner with BP at the site, for not accepting its share of the blame...

...the way Mitsui & Co. Ltd., a 10% partner -- and 20% owned by the Japanese government -- took its fair share of blame...

...unlike the US Minerals and Management Service, which skirted responsibility until an inspector general's report blamed the agency for "lax oversight" and "cozy ties to industry"...

...and Congress itself, which was blamed for inaction by environmental groups...

...who were, in turn, blamed for pushing drilling rigs into such deep water to begin with...

...before North Korean commandos were blamed for torpedoing the rig as an act of war against Hyundai Heavy Industries, the South Korean firm that originally built the platform...

...but has not been blamed in any way for the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon.
