What Are The Chances That Robert Kennedy Jr Will Admit Lying About Halliburton?

BP engineer called doomed rig a 'nightmare well'

Please recall several weeks ago in which environmental leftist Robert Kennedy Jr climbed out of his hole and began to blame the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on Halliburton and thus the Bush Administration and thus former VP Dick Cheney who once lead Halliburton.    Kennedy laid out a scenario in which greed and corporate recklessness lead to the failure.  It was Halliburton that laid the cement on the fateful under-sea encasement. 

Please read the story at the link and tell me if Kennedy has any credibility.  It turns out that Halliburton was fighting against the engineers at BP regarding the need to install a more robust underwater infrastructure.

To be clear, beyond exposing the lies of Kennedy - no one knows what triggered the blow out in which methane gas was ignited, ultimately destroying the platform.

Today the news media is taking the quote from the engineer ("Nightmare well") and making it out to be a prediction of the events that soon followed.  This is not the case.
