The grand jury points the players in the direction they deserve:  

   "...charged with conspiracy and violation of the federal
   Clean Water Act... conspiracy, a Clean Water Act violation, 
   and obstruction of justice... conspiracy, three Clean Water
   Act violations and seven charges of making false statements."


Although, given these facts:

   "According to the indictment, the [...] facility continued
   to accept millions of gallons of liquid wastes, which were
   beyond its capability to properly treat or store.  It also
   says that in order to reduce costs and maintain storage, 
   the defendants skipped treatment steps, discharged unprocessed
   wastes [...] and provided false statements and engaged in
   other activities that were intended to conceal illegal 
   operations."

...it sounds as though it was written about some CAFO or other!

     The best proof for a claim that terrorists are crazy or evil
     would be to acknowledge that the White House is full of them
