BP now says well cap to remain closed indefinitely, pucks Thad Allen's mouth
~What? No word from Thad Allen? He said yesterday that there would definitely be opening and containment once the tests are over.
“As we continue to see success in the temporary halt of oil from the leak, the U.S. government and BP have agreed to allow the well integrity test to continue another 24 hours," he said. "When this test is eventually stopped, we will immediately return to containment,” he added.
Guess BP actually does still call the shots here? So much for Unified Command.
