22. This is an ignorant article.
Clinton does not "think" we should blow up the well.

What he is saying is that the oil industry has to be in charge of stopping it because the government does not have any capacity to participate or help in plugging it. And if the industry can not stop it then, and only then, the Navy will have to take over because they are the ones who will have the ability to deal with it if explosives are necessary. I will admit he didn't articulate his meaning as clearly as he usually does. Maybe he gives viewers too much credit. He should know better.

He also said the ramifications of using explosive (not nuclear) will have to be studied before that decision is taken.

Let the pile on continue...
