WASHINGTON — President Obama has suspended all plans for new offshore oil drilling until authorities learn what caused the explosion of the rig Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico.
The White House made the announcement Friday, the morning after oil started washing up on the Mississippi shoreline.
“No additional drilling has been authorized and none will until we find out what happened here and whether there was something unique and preventable here,” White House adviser David Axelrod said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” show. “No domestic drilling in new areas is going to go forward until there is a adequate review of what’s happened here and of what is being proposed elsewhere.”
