That’s the breaking news on GMA this morning from the President’s man in charge, Admiral Thad Allen. 


“They have been able to stop the hydro-carbons from coming up the well bore….they’ve been able to push the hydro-carbons, the oil, down with the mud.  The real challenge is to put enough mud into the well to keep the pressure where they can put a cement plug over the top.”




His optimism was echoed by BP’s CEO Tony Hayward, who said the “junk shot” has been added to the “top kill.”
