Mary Frances Barnes, BP's probation officer, said that is a question investigators will determine.

"It will be looked into," Barnes told Truthout. "We just have let the investigations play out first."

West, who now heads the Department of Intelligence and Investigations for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, has heard that story before.

"I don't think BP learned any lessons," he said. "They were just doing what corporations do. It's the government that failed us. Now there's the disaster in the Gulf.

I will bet that when the investigations into the explosion and leak are complete we're going to find out it had something to do with BP cutting corners."
