Did Obama know the BP rig was in trouble?

According to an article on FoxNews this morning, it appears that the Obama administration not only knew of the problems with BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig, but was actually asked for help with it:

...according to documents in the administration's possession, BP was fighting large cracks at the base of the well for roughly ten days in early February.

Further it seems the administration was also informed about this development, six weeks before to the rig's fatal explosion when an engineer from the University of California, Berkeley, announced to the world a near miss of an explosion on the rig by stating, "They damn near blew up the rig."

It's also now being reported that BP was asking for the administration's help on this matter long before the deadly accident and the now gushing well of tar.
I don't know if this is true or not, but it sounds to me that it should be investigated but a Democrat Congress controlled by Pelosi and Reid will certainly not be interested in pursuing the matter.

If Bush was in office the media would be all over it.........no, that's not true. They would just crucify him without bothering to investigate it. Since Obama is in charge, the story is likely to be met with a big yawn by the MSM.
