Are you puzzled about the attempt to drag the President of the United States into the resolution of problems caused by a huge global corporation, problems that are ultimately the responsibility of its executive management and shareholders alike? The best place to begin sorting this out is to freeze all BP assets worldwide, throw the company into receivership, convene a grand jury, subpoena the executive management starting with those listed below, and extradite them if necessary. The company has a huge financial liability and it seems likely that the management is guilty of breaking all kinds of civil and criminal laws here in the United States. Bravo to President Obama if he can support clean-up efforts, but where we really need his leadership is in bringing those responsible to justice. Where are the indictments? Where is the Justice department in all this?
