White House issues vague response to BP report on Deepwater Horizon disaster (9/10)
September 10, 2010
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to a gaggle of reporters yesterday aboard Air Force One: “Well, look, obviously we’re looking at the report and there’s an active, ongoing investigation as to what went wrong that day in April. Our focus is on finding out -- and again, I talked about this yesterday -- we’ve got -- the blowout preventer is now -- we have the ability to look at it, add that to part of the investigation. And our job is to find out what went wrong and hold those responsible accountable for the damage that’s been done, and that’s what the administration will do.
