Stuxnet and Deep Water Horizon Rig

From F-SECURE.com's Security Lab blog:

Q: Did Stuxnet sink Deepwater Horizon and cause the Mexican oil spill?
A: No, we do not think so. Although it does seem Deepwater Horizon indeed did have some Siemens PLC systems on it.
F-SECURE.com also thinks this malware was created by a government.

Now, do you remember one curious response of Obama after the oil rig sank? He dispatched SWAT teams to secure other oil rigs and platforms as if he thought it was a terrorist attack on Deepwater Horizon. Or was it a terrorist attack, using Stuxnet that some unknown government created?

It's getting curiouser and curiouser.
