Blame game has no end in sight

While BP says it will pay to clean up the mammoth oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the British oil giant has repeatedly placed blame elsewhere for the tragic rig accident last month that started it all.  How much longer it will be able to keep saying so, however, is another question.  The company likely will face a high legal bar in proving contractors involved in drilling the BP well were at fault and liable for damages, given protections BP agreed to in its lease contract for the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, one industry analyst said.
