    The only reason they could reduce pressure is because it was working. That's the entire goal of this - to knock the pressure down to 0. They don't want to keep the pressure high because that was their biggest worry here - that the pressure were so high that they'd damage the BOP or the equipment. They'd lower it as soon as the rig would permit.

    It slows the effort down, but it increases the likelihood of success.

    Leave it to Republicans to set the house on fire and then rant that the fire department is socialist.
