Bill Clinton: Gusher expert and complete idiot
"The Navy could probably stop it, but there are all kinds of consequences that would have to be considered," he said.
"You could stop that well, but what else might you do that might upset the ecostructure of the Gulf?"
He says the Navy would not need to use a nuclear weapon, explaining that the Navy could simply "blow up the well and cover the leak with piles and piles and piles of rock and debris".
Mr Clinton expressed concern there was little else the government could do if BP's experts failed.
"Unless we're going to do all that, we're dependent on the technical expertise of these people at BP," he said.
As if blowing up the well and burying it in a mountain of rubble would make any difference. And doesn't Clinton think that maybe BP has consulted with outside experts on possible solutions? The man's a fool.
