BP Cut Costs Over Safety?: Join the Live Chat

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

BP is under fire after congress releases internal documents from the company. The documents question whether BP was more interested in cutting costs and not safety. We're keeping them honest. Plus,  we'll have all the other developments live from Louisiana.

    Good Night all! That right Anderson, we are not going anywhere! We are concerned about this oil spill, and the welfare of our three states in this matter!

    Gen Honore makes Thad Allen look like a Boy Scout.

    Great questions by Gary! Maybe Honore should be president, he seems to be able to make decisions. "Put the well hole in receivership", great idea! The general doesn't mince words.

    General Honoré is correct! Treat this Gulf situation as a battle! Not as Adm. Allen is treating it, Damage Control for BP!

    Anderson, you are doing a great job, and honoring all of us Americans who seek truth and honesty in corporations and government. Keep it up. "Slow and steady, wins the race..."

    I vote for General Foretraus to get ontop of this oil spill on the ground. He will light a fire under some ass, and get this show rolling big !! He has alot of respect from the American people and his fellow soliders. He is wise and knows all resources that are avabile and knows the lands. Get him in PLEASE.

    Claudia, there have been offers of assistance from all over the world, including Canada. These people are mostly being ignored. That is why it is important for your government to fully take over the attempts to clean up the mess. Let BP concentrate on stopping the gusher, but they will need to pay for the cleanup.

    Yeah thank god for kevin Kostner, but yeah he's in it for both, and I'm sure the number one reason is not the money. This guy has been putting in so many years of his life for this, to be turned down for how long, and now this event happens and they want his help. Dam right he's wants the money, especially for all the years of work he put in . Look at the way he reacted in the interview. I would want to help and get paid if I devoted over TEN years!!!

    I agree, it makes no sense for BP to have control to make decisions. It's the government's job (federal, state, local) to look out for the public interest... they need to have authority and send the bill to BP... or have BP pay up front.

    For cryin' out loud, not one thing is being handled effectively and now I just finished watching your interview with the Intl. Bird Rescue rep. on how the bird rescues are inept and ineffective compared to what they could be. You need to tell us who to contact to complain about this one. I've written so many emails to so many politicians my fingers are numb.
    Get all this darn red tape out of the way!
    Thanks for your amazing (and consistently distressing) coverage.
