"Let's just fix the problem" said former President Bill Clinton on
the subject of BP's oil spill. And by fix he means blow the well up
explosives. Clinton offered his advice
at a forum hosted by Fortune,
CNN and Time in South Africa:
Unless we send the Navy down deep to blow up the well and cover the leak
with piles and piles and piles of debris, which may become necessary-
and you don't have a nuclear weapon, by the way, I've seen all that
stuff. Just blow it up. Unless we're going to do that, we are dependent
on the technical expertise of these people at BP.
