  3. Old military saying: "You're either part of the problem or part of the solution." So who is giving the orders for these guys to do this? Why is the USAF and USCG doing this when the EPA said for BP to stop using this? A triple whammy of hell on earth (toxic oil, burning causing toxic gases and the toxic dispersants) When did our government stop being "of, by and for the people"?

    Gee Terri, a long time ago. I would like to thank you again sir for the very informative flight footage you posted. There is nothing in the news,nothing like it. Right now while most of america sleeps our gonvernment has obviously decided to tighten security at the spill site and prohibit flying over the site. This is equivalent to a media blackout. No real news just whatever they want to train your mind to see. Today they are taking the lid off the well and try and replace it. This is said to take 3 or 4 days. As for the relief wells being used to plug it,the chart or diagram I've seen, which is available on the net to anyone, is showing 2 to 3 miles deep to intersect a peice of 7 inch pipe. I have one pertinant question: If you couldn't handle the pressure of the well you tapped into the first time and it blew the whole rig, what should make any of us believe that drilling a second well is such a good idea? God bless ya Hurricane, hope you can get more footage soon.
