BP CEO hit at Congressional hearing

BP CEO Tony HaywardMembers of Congress came down hard on BP CEO Tony Hayward (r.) as he testified about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  But political science Professor Graham Wilson, author of “Business and Politics,” wondered why the spotlight over American’s worst-ever spill hasn’t shone on Transocean, BP’s partner in the Gulf of Mexico oil rig that exploded in April.

“How did Transocean get off the hook so easily?  Aren’t they people who were drilling the well with MMS approval and weren’t they ones saying the rig was needed to quickly to drill another well?”
