BP Internal Investigation Points Finger at Other Companies in Oil Spill Disaster

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Earlier this morning, BP released the results of its own investigation of what caused the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico over the summer. The inquiry states that "no single factor caused the Macondo well tragedy," and heavily lays blame on BP's contractors, particularly Halliburton and Transocean.

The report is being seen both as an attempt at spin control by the beleaguered company, as well as their likely defense strategy in what could be years of litigation. Ian Urbina of our partner, The New York Times joins us with the latest.
