~The report neither exonerates nor places blame. The intent is to find out what went wrong and why and to prevent future disasters. It is the intent of the independent investigation that President Obama ordered 84 days after the Macondo Well blew. Meanwhile, it has been more than five years since levees and floodwalls failed catastrophically in New Orleans and St. Bernard Parish swamping a major city and killing over 1,500 people, and no independent investigation has yet to be ordered. When the investigation is finally ordered, at a cost of about $5 million, we will finally find out what went wrong and why. The report would also recommend what changes, if any, should be made to the way water projects are chosen, funded and built in this country.
