    Why the hell is a retired Thad Allen still running things and (for the second time now) lying and acting as a BP flak?

    BP says they stopped pumping mud (which all went right out the pipe).  I have seen nothing from BP that says the column of mud every accumulated in the pipe which would slow the oil flow.

    BP has twice given up on the mud pumping.  They moved on to the desperation throw some garbage in the pipe and see what happens.  So they got one piece of rubber to stick in the hole in the top of the bent over stack.

    Their next step will be to cut off the bent stack or cut off the whole BOP. If it is true the leaking is from the casing and not the wellbore inside pipe, they might be able to get mud down the inside pipe and re-drill it out and get mud in.
