    Where are all the ships at ? all the views of the oil spill shows only a few boats with booms behind them. I would think every ship and vessel capable of clean up should be used. Also has anyone thought to modify those huge vacuum dredge barges which suck up extreme amounts of mud off the bottom tosuck up the oil on the surface?

    To continue, BP has not been transparent enough to the government and the American people. Put a constant High Res camera on that pipe, and get one of BPs talking heads to explain in detail what is going on. And this thing of BP and their private security keeping the media out of public land is BS!

    Obviously BP knows what this well is producing without video they knew what it was or forecast it before they drilled it. Just find out what the offsets (Other wells in the area) are producing already pressures etc oil to gas ratio and more should be available data.

    Why can't the government treat BP like a terrorist, seize their equipment and allow a different oil company to complete the tasks at hand (all paid for in the end by BP)?

    I see a clean cut on the oil pipe from the hi-def pictures you are showing us. I am dumb founded that with all the experience, technology, and resources that BP cannot put a cap on this? Ridicules!!!! I could drive the ROV down there and put a cap on that pipe. I will do it for free!!! Find a solution and lets be done with this. Pretty soon the entire Gulf will be dead and then there will be no reason to stop drilling there.

    @ Andersson. Ask the rig workers about the logs. Down hole logs, wireline logs and mud logs. Those provide extraordinary levels of detail of every minute of operation. That data is all in BP's records.
