Oil continues to gush

The oil continues to spill in the Gulf of Mexico. They are trying to put mud into the well so that it slows the spill and allow it to be filled with cement. The well is also a mile deep so that makes the entire procedure risky and not exactly a slam dunk procedure. My question is did they ever do any sort of a dry run exercise in the event that this happens.

Yes, I do not think the Obama administration is acting properly in doing this. They should be utilizing more of their engineering experts to assist in this effort. The government does employ rocket scientists, they should have someone that knows about undersea infrastructure. I do not think the corporation (BP) that dropped the ball on this should have this much authority over the the attempt to repair the oil pipe.
