U.S. President Barack Obama says the U.S. government will hold BP fully accountable for a massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mr. Obama told reporters Thursday that BP is responsible for what he called a "horrific disaster" that began when an oil rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and rupturing an undersea well.
The president countered criticism that his administration has not been involved enough in the cleanup and containment effort, saying BP is operating at the government's direction.
