I read the question that the issue revolved around life saving pumps, as if that's all that matters. Add to the fact that does it really matter who supplied them, given that's its well known that there is a large international and local effort. The issue is the rescue, not the finer detail
I think you are being overly harsh. Different people find different things interesting in any given situation. My FIL is a vastly experienced commerical diver (1000+ dives) and was interested in the technical side as well. Doesn't mean they don't care about other factors.
That's your opinion, I have mine. Its very interesting about how much the pumps are pumping out, how much the water level changed when they tested turning them off, that's interesting. Very interesting in fact, it gives us readers as insight into the whole model of this rescue. The tunnels, the length, the water, and so on. An inventory of suppliers and brands, not so much
