    He never claimed that the job was done and there was no oil left in the gulf.

    i was under the impression that NOAA is the one making the claims and he was repeating what they(the current experts in the field) were telling him.. NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Federal Science Report Details Fate of Oil from BP Spill

    Is this a special magic oil which isn't less dense than water?
    Don't work out, work in.
