Another question, why is the government sending SWAT teams to search other rigs and platforms?
Do they think, believe, or have information that the explosion and sinking of the rig was an act of sabotage or terrorism (I mean man-caused disaster)? Or are they just acting stupid?
In other words, do something, anything, so we won't look like Bush and Katrina?
