Seattle Times:

The top kill has proven successful in aboveground wells, but has never before been tried a mile beneath the sea. Company executives peg its chances of success at 60 to 70 percent.

60-70%, how about 10-15%. Hate to be the one to break the bad news, but working a mile under water is a lot different than working in a desert. There is that whole water thing to contend with.
