Critical Review of the BP Deepwater Horizon Internal Accident Report

The report ends like this:

BP’s blatant (some might say cynical) buck-passing calls the validity of the entire report into question, but that’s not surprising, with the stakes so high.  Rather than getting to the truth, BP’s goal here was to spread as much fault as possible and blaming the dead guys is always easiest. The shame is that all this gamesmanship obscures the possible real causes that could help save lives as the industry goes back to work in the deepwater.

I didn’t expect that kind of transparecy, though, especially based on the experiences of the last 4 months.
