  •  Actually, that's an interesting question. (0+ / 0-)

    that should be asked of the CEO and Board of BP - with nobody leaving the room unaccompanied by security personnel until really detailed answers are provided. Even if it's a rhetorical question, the response would be interesting.

    •  Not sure what the question is, (1+ / 0-)

      but under what legal authority do you propose to hold the CEO and Board of BP in a room and prevent them from leaving unescorted until you get your answer?

      •  11 people died unncessarily during this mess (0+ / 0-)

        I'd be thinking of maybe material witnesses to destruction of property. Given that 11 people died, I'd also take a hard look at them as potential accessories to manslaughter (corporations are people too, these days). And I'd go after them for the cover-up.

        AND (IANAL, of course - but I'm sure you knew that) I'd be wondering how to do an analog of the Nuremberg trials - but that's just me being malicious.
