The White House is pushing back against a series of draft staff reports released yesterday by the national oil spill commission.

As I noted in my story yesterday, the White House did in fact release an estimate in May of the worst-case scenario of the spill, despite suggestions in the report that it would not disclose the figures. The report also said that the White House Office of Management and Budget denied a request by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to release flow-rate data in weeks after the spill.

Jake Tapper at ABC News explains, summarizing the words of administration officials: “…that’s because the NOAA modeling was not taking into affect the oil that was being skimmed, burned and collected by Top Hat. OMB was the location for the interagency clearance process, and officials there wanted to make sure the information coming from the administration was as precise as possible, officials say.”

At the same time, the officials said “Carol was mistaken,” in response to the report’s criticism of White House climate and energy adviser Carol Browner’s mischaracterization of a key report on the spill.
