After five weeks of unrelenting bad news from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf, neither BP nor the Coast Guard command is likely to announce that they’ve at last stopped the gusher until they’re absolutely, positively, hands-down sure. This morning, they’re falling over themselves to deny a Los Angeles Times report that U.S. Coast Guard commander Thad Allen declared that the top-kill effort to plug the leak has succeeded.
“Engineers have stopped the flow of oil and gas,” said an article on latimes.com. Nuh-uh answered the Coast Guard. “At the moment we can’t confirm or deny anything,” a spokeswoman said.
"The top kill procedure is going as planned, and it is moving along as everyone had hoped," said U.S. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, who is leading the government's response to the oil spill.
But whether mud is able to defeat oil won't be known until later Thursday.
