Former FBI chief Louis Freeh is appointed to investigate alleged improprieties by an attorney involved in overseeing settlement payments related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. BP had called for an independent investigation into the allegations and has argued the court-appointed administrator has approved payouts that are either too large or go to parties that didn’t actually suffer losses from the spill.

    I agree 1000% . The stories are factual and the nerve, greed, and stupidityof companies and individuals makes me ashamed of those involved. Don't just fine them ....throw their asses in jail.

    I have heard of many small businesses claiming losses but really don't have grounds to stand on. I know the oil kept people away from the gulf region but so do hurricanes, do I sue Mother Nature for that? The fact is BP has stood up and has taken the blame but are they the real entity to blame and should they carry the bulk of the losses. If businesses are found to cheat on their claim what should be their punishment? Many see deep pockets and leave their good sense at home, if they had any to start with.

    I don't particularly trust the duo of Barbier and Juneau. I would sincerely hope Freeh is honest and fair in his assessment.
