    BP Oil Disaster Criminal Probe: With These Parties Involved How Could We Not Have Seen This Coming?


    If I sold 276 million of BP stock and bought a company that puts out oil well fires weeks before the oil platform explosion I'd have the FBI at  my door within hours of these revelation if not minutes.  There is a lot of profiteering that will go on here and also a lot of   blame.  Let's look at the evidence:


    Three weeks before the BP disaster, Goldman Sachs sold 44% of its stock in BP for a total of  approximately 276 MILLION!!!!  Look at #10 on the bottom chart of MSN Money Central  and here for additional info


    Halliburton bought a company called Boots & Coots  which became well known for putting out some of the world's largest oil  and gas fires 8 days before disaster!!!



    Halliburton finished cementing well only 20 hours before the  explosion.  A previous cementing job by Halliburton on an Australian oil rig was was implicated as a possible cause of the explosion there that sent oil spewing for 74 days!!!!




    BP sent workers from Schlumberger the well head testing company home 11 hours before the explosion "without performing a final check”


    Halliburton donates $17,000 to candidates running for federal office,  giving money to several lawmakers on committees that have launched  inquiries into the massive spill.


    BP hired a former spokeswoman for Vice President Dick Cheney to be its  public face for the disaster.  Anne Womack Kolton, former head of  public affairs at the Department of Energy and Cheney's onetime campaign  press secretary, will take the baton from BP this week.
