The President had planned to take a personal tour of the region just after the Memorial Day weekend in Chicago, and later he made the decision to invigilate the region with the Coast Guard.
Admiral Thad Allen of the Coast Guard took the President showed him the protective booms placed in the sea, but the President did not seem satisfied. The President and his officials passed the beach which had a hand-written plank sign, saying ‘Beach Closed’.
The Presidents trip to the gulf was his second since April 20th, when the catastrophic tragedy occurred, making it the worst oil disaster in US history.
Obama even stated that, BP’s ‘Top Kill’ technique has no guarantee that it would be a success, so he took the initiative of looking into the matter.
