BP Report Designed to Make Partners Liable
BP has released an internal investigation into the Deepwater Horizon rig disaster, which led to the release of five million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The report and accompanying video basically blames everyone for the disaster, from misreadings of well integrity tests before the explosion, to the failure of the blowout preventer, to flawed design of various other prevention systems.

Say NO to the BP bailout:
We, the undersigned, demand the Senate eliminate the liability cap and force companies to pay for their disasters in full. Taxpayers cannot be expected to bailout another irresponsible corporate giant. We need accountability in business now.
