Faced with looking impotent, as a result of not mobilising any of the USA's considerable military or civilian resources to help staunch the ongoing oil spill, Barack Obama has resorted to shrill attacks on BP and the CEO of BP (Tony Hayward).
Unsurprisingly BP's share price continues to tumble, falling a further 10% today.
Doubtless it is very easy to try to pass the buck to what the US keeps claiming is a British company.
However, the States would do well to remember that the part of BP that is handling the spill is in fact American. It would also do well to remember that several other companies, including Halliburton (a US company with links to Cheney and Bush), were also involved.
What goes around comes around.
