13. ''...a politically connected'' FOREIGN corporation.
Oh wait, BP absorbed AMOCO, that was an American company. The company then is an international corporation. So, that means they're above the law and explains why they're not all that worried about their little drop of oil in the great big ocean.

Remember how much BP cares for the people of Nigeria and a whole lot of other places who live on top of BP's oil.
