Should Feds Takeover Effort to Stop Oil Leak?: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Some people are pushing for the federal government to take the lead in the effort to stop the Gulf oil leak. But is that a good idea? We're keeping them honest on that and other developments in the crisis. Plus, a new royal scandal. The Duchess of York caught on tape on trying to sell access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew. We'll give you an up close look at the drama.

    The feds should have been involved at the very beginning.
    I am Canadian and I am very concerned about this tragedy and the developments unfolding in the area.

    I think the entire planet is concerned about this issue. Canada already offered its help by sending abroad scientists specifically trained in these disasters. I am certain many other countries offered to help.

    FIrst of all, BP is not even paying 50% of the cost of the disaster, their insurance company is covering the most part and this will raise the price of insurance globally without a doubt. Already, BP is kind of off the hook. They showed sign of major negligence before, why would we expect them to be on top of their game during the recovery process.

    Does BP or the govt know how much oil is gushing out of the well at this point?

    What is the national incident command that I've heard of and how much of a command does that command have?

    Possibly the Sec of Defense doesn't want to make a statement at 10pm about the repeal of don't ask don't tell. I'm glad congress is finally taking this step.

    That is an interesting report on Capt Phillips and the Maersk Alabama crew by Drew Griffin. Sounds possibly like the Capt was under pressure to make port at a certain time. How did shipping dispatch handle the warning received by captains.

    The purse strings of the Royal Family are not a pretty picture, Renee.

    May 24, 2010 at 10:56 pm |
  26. Renee

    Her children are royals. They really need to be helping out Mummy at this point. They can support her. The Royal Family are billionaires.

    Ferggie seems to not be able to help herself......this is not the 1st time she has attracted she has attracted scandal.

    I am certain she is sorry for such a poor decision.

    May 24, 2010 at 10:53 pm |
  31. Renee

    All she gets is $15,000 pounds per year! That is it! Where was Gloria Alred?

    isn't videotaping a (former) royalty or any normal person illegal? what are the laws in the UK about this kind of stuff?
    what prompted for the reporter to meet with the Princess? sounds fishy...

    Those royals sure like to inflate their importance. I couldn't care less about any of them.

    Oh dear, Sarah....never can quite 'fly right' for long, in the royal-game. (I bet lots of back-room deals are made in the Royal Family.)
