Oil Spill Commission Co-Chair Defends Panel’s Reports
The national oil spill commission managed to get through its meeting today without addressing the controversial reports its staff released last week, which criticized the Obama administration’s response to the Gulf oil spill. But afterward, reporters pressed commission co-chairman William Reilly for comment. And Reilly defended the reports.
According to The Hill, he said:
We stand by our staff reports. Those are high quality reports meticulously vetted for fact-based conclusions.
The White House had a different take on the reports last week.
