Well as investigators start dissecting actually what happened to cause the deaths of eleven men and the largest oil spill in American history, we find our old friends Halliburton right in the thick of things.  According to an article published in the New York Times, Halliburton knew that the concrete used to seal the bottom of the well was unstable and didn’t meet industry standards.  Halliburton initially informed BP of the error and then failed to follow up with BP even though retests showed that the problem still exists.  This comes as no shock to anyone that both BP and Halliburton have extreme culpability in this accident.
