Understanding The Problem
Tony Hayward, BP CEO, said,
"In this accident, based on what we understand so far, seven layers of protection were breached."
He doesn't understand the problem. The problem is not how many layers of protection they had. The problem is that they had no viable plan in place if a blowout happened.
A four month wait while a relief well is drilled is not a viable plan.
