    Default BP lowers cap over damaged oil well

    The feat is an important step in the effort to contain the flow into the Gulf of Mexico. President Obama plans Friday to make his third trip to the region since the spill.

    That cap is too small and light to close off the increased pressure of the upward rushing leak, and BP engineers know it. They can flush out the ice crystals from the original and much larger dome, lower it over the leaking pipe and its weight will cover and contain the spill as the tube sucks the oil up onto the ship above. Why won't they even try it? Are they incompetent, insane or both?!
