Jake Tapper, ABC: I talked to a guy who runs a company in Maine that offers boom, and he has — he says — the ability to make 90,000 feet of boom a day. High quality. BP came there 2 weeks ago, looked at it, they are doing another audit today. He is very frustrated, he says he has a lot of high quality boom to go and it is taking a long time for BP to get its act together. Don’t you need this boom right now?Yet here's a letter from Maine's Senator's (home of
Allen: Oh we need all the boom wherever we can get it. If you give me the information off camera I’ll be glad to follow up.
The letter states that the company had advised the Admiral on May 21 that they had miles and miles of the boom available for deployment...this adminstration is incompetent and that incompetence has begun to filter down...what is most troubling of all is that all the Enviro NGO's have been notably silent on how badly Mr. Obama and his administration has screwed up this effort.
