6. No problem, it's much smaller than the universe...

I was watching Maddow tonight when she was discussing the abandonment of the latest "top hat" approach and the new plan to insert a tube into the casing to plug the well with "objects". That would not be possible if the casing which had the original 3 leaks was not ruptured or had not been removed by the subs, or perhaps knocked aside in the attempt to put the domes over it. So any oil coming from the casing may be only tangential.

So without an overt announcement, in what appears to be a continuing campaign of obfuscation, I think we have been told this well is, and perhaps has been, completely open and without restriction blowing the oil into the ocean, at some unknown and horrendously large rate. Did I miss the big announcement?

I would appreciate Navy remote-controlled sub video being taken and shown to the public in between failed attempts to cap this thing by BP. It might up the motivation level to get it closed.
