The key to solving the Deepwater problems is to go right at the root cause. For the past two years that has been senior Coast Guard leadership. While changes have been put in place they are not nearly enough. Major security and safety issues still exist and we never fully accounted for the 123 issues. The leadership is now so dug in and vested in their own survival, career ambitions and egos that the only way to resolve the issues is to change the leadership. That change should include every officer who actively participated in the problems and those who sat by passively. The new Secretary of DHS might also want to create a Secretary of the Coast Guard position.
