That’s what he told me this morning on ‘GMA’ after Palin released the following on her Facebook page last night: “There’s a culture of buck-passing at the heart of this administration that has caused the tragedy of a sunken oil rig to turn into a potential disaster.”



Allen’s response this morning: “I don’t believe the federal effort has caused this disaster…It’s one of the most anomalous and unprecedented events we’ve encountered because there’s no human access at the source of the leak and the technology to deal with that source lies in the hands of the private sector so it require immense degree of coordination and oversight maybe even more oversight than would normally be exerted by the federal government so I wouldn’t agree with that.”
