    this looming disaster but, having been paying attention to this situation since it started, I do have to ask a question with regard to this incident:

    What two boats sunk?  I haven't heard anything about that with regard to this incident, so I was curious about the circumstances...

    •  Might be two of four lifeboats? (6+ / 0-)

      McClatchy reported yesterday on a teleconference inadvertly heard by reporters.

      Before the teleconference officially began at 7:30 p.m., a microphone to the room was briefly opened and any reporter on the line could hear Mehler rehearse his remarks.

      "As we flew along the shoreline we did see four lifeboats that we believe to be from the Kulluk. All right? In addition, there was some debris in the area but it's not known if those items were from the Kulluk. I am encouraged by what we saw today, and we are awaiting the salvage team's assessment to finalize plans to remove the potential for any release. All right?"

      At that point, he had a brief conservation about his statement with a Coast Guard public information officer, Amy Midgett, and then the line went dead. Five minutes later, when Mehler made his formal statement during the official briefing, the item about other debris in the area vanished from his remarks.

      Asked later to explain what why that reference was dropped, Shell spokeswoman Dustin Singleton, speaking for the incident command, said she would find out, but hadn't replied by 9:15 p.m.
