Interior head says conduct on Gulf rig reckless

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said on Wednesday he believes initial findings from investigations of the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion indicate reckless behavior preceded the accident.

“My own view having taken a review of some of the preliminary investigations that have been done is that there was reckless conduct that was involved,” Salazar told lawmakers at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing.
