UK Today News: BP Oil Spill Update 2010: Oil Spill Florida – Bill Nelson Asks Obama for Military Help
Oil Spill Florida: The Florida Sen. Mr Bill Nelson has asked the President of the US, Barack Obama to involve the Department of Defense to help speed up the healing process of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Bill Nelson wrote in a letter to the CNN saying that, since the “top kill” operation was not a success, the President should take more control by also involving the Military.
Nelson in the letter went on to say,
“While the Coast Guard, under the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Guard both are involved, it is my belief that the broader assets and command and control capability of the Department of Defense could better translate your directives into prompt, effective action,
Nelson further wrote that
“Americans need to feel that their government is taking an all hands on deck response,”
The Oil Spill of the Gulf of Mexico is the biggest oil spill disaster in the history of the United states and BP will have a lot more work to do to get things under control as soon as possible.
