Well, I love Eddie and he's certainly entitled to his opinion ... and having grown-up with BP he does bring a different viewpoint. Although he did say BP has a share of the blame in this, which is counter to the attitude that it's all the fault of the subcontractors. I actually think his take on the situation is the reasonable one: there's enough blame to go around for all the parties involved. The legal wrangling will merely determine how much of the responsibility goes to whom.

Personally, from what I've read and heard, at this point I'm of the opinion BP should at least get a major portion, if not the lion's share, of the responsibility for this catastrophe. But we'll have to see how the facts shake-out when all the dust has settled in a decade or so ...
