"What we are doing is we mounted the largest response ever. You know, we've put more boom in the water than has ever been done before. And thankfully, actually so far, very little oil has come ashore. I think partly that is due to our efforts and partly that is due to mother nature," Suttles said.
Following a meeting with senior administration officials and members of his cabinet President Obama criticized oil industry officials for the "ridiculous spectacle" of blaming each other for the oil spill and promised to end the "cozy relationship" between the industry and federal regulators.
This morning on "GMA" Suttles said he thinks the teamwork in fighting the spill has been "unparalleled."
"We each have our unique roles in this process but we each have a common mission which is we want to bring this thing to end as quickly as we can and we want to minimize the impact," Suttles said. "And I couldn't say enough about the great people from the government and in particular the coast guard who we are working with."
