Obama Defends Handling of Oil Spill

Obama Defends Handling of Oil Spill 27 May 2010 Saying that he is "angry and frustrated" over the oil spill gusher in the Gulf of Mexico, President Obama on Thursday ordered work to be suspended on exploratory drilling in the gulf and cancelled or deferred some future wells around the country, as the head of the agency regulating offshore drilling resigned under pressure. Addressing deepening public frustration and defending his handling of the five-week-old crisis, Mr. Obama acknowledged that his team had made several mistakes of judgment and approach, at one point even saying "I was wrong" to believe that oil companies were prepared for worst-case disasters as he moved forward with plans for expanded offshore drilling last month, before the disaster in the gulf.
