    Why Didn't BP Do Top Kill Weeks Ago?

    What sort of massive preparation did this demand that they have waited weeks for this next stunt?? Isn't the reason that they were hoping early on that the dome would allow them to contain the leak and recover the oil from the reservoir? When that didn't work, they moved on to other options but in the meantime they continued to pollute the Gulf and now it's turned into one giant tar pit. What the government should be looking at is why the top kill option was not used long ago, when the company estimated its success at 60 - 70%. If it was because of BP's profit motive, then you gotta think the company is completely negligent and really is going to be up ship creek in litigation, when they could have stopped the leak before it turned into the catastrophic environmental disaster it is now.

    Only serious answers/comments please.
