BP top kill halted due to "snag," another giant underwater plume of oil discovered

The New York Times reported today that BP's "top kill" effort has been halted due to a snag.

A "snag?" Perhaps that is a reference to the estimated 165 to 170 thousand pounds per square inch of pressure that is blowing oil and natural gas from the floor of the Gulf like a volcano, and now also blowing out the drilling "mud" that BP is attempting to inject in the opening to seal it.
