Re: Why are these guys even in charge?

They know, very approximately, what happened, but they're nowhere near working out why it happened, or how to stop it happening again. Design problem? Mechanical failure? Software bug? Human error? So yes, there are many months of diligent work involved to sort out the details. Not their fault if that exceeds the attention span of newspaper readers.
