Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and other officials speak to the media in Pass A Loutre
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and other officials explain to the media the damage the BP oil spill has already inflicted on the delicate coastline in Pass A Loutre near Venice, Louisiana May 26, 2010. Jindal gave a tour of the area to reporters showing the damage of the oil spill. BP launched an ambitious deep sea operation to choke off a gushing oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, but President Barack Obama cautioned Americans there was no guarantee it would work. BP is under intense pressure from Obama to bring a swift end to the five-week-old spill that threatens an environmental catastrophe and has ignited a political storm.
