Obama administration defends BP response to oil spill disaster By Andre Damon 25 May 2010 Amid growing popular anger over BP’s disastrous response to the gulf coast oil spill, the Obama administration came to the company’s defense on Monday, while again rejecting any federal takeover of the response. Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen defended BP’s actions at a White House press conference on Monday, calling them "rational." Allen said that he could not see any reason why the federal government should take over the response to the oil spill. Allen said that he was "satisfied with the coordination that is going on," and that BP is "exhausting every technical response" to the leak. He added that "There’s no reason to make a change" to the official response to the oil spill. When asked to clarify whether BP or the US government was in charge of the cleanup, Allen said that the two were working in "partnership."
