Tracing the oil spill to Dick Cheney

Remember way back when, with Cheney and Bush in the White House, Cheney had an energy task force that met secretly, and he wouldn't allow their discussions to be publicized?

There are indications that that task force made the decision not to require oil companies to install something called an "acoustic switch" which would have made it possible to turn off the oil flow in the Gulf remotely following the explosion.

See this article by Michael Tomasky in the UK's Guardian.
