Oh look at this: ``He was the person who decided on behalf of Exxon that it was safe to leave port the night of March 23, 1989,'' Fisher argued."

He probably was drunk when they left at 6:00 pm with a pilot, and probably was not drunk when the accident occurred at 11:00 pm.

THAT's probably the hook. Bloomberg

Seems a bit disconnected. He couldn't very well sit there for weeks? waiting for the icebergs to all float away.
