BP is making another attempt to stop the flow of oil gushing deep below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, with a method known as a "top kill." The plan is to inject a thick mud into the oil well to push the oil down then seal it with cement, but experts say it has a fifty percent chance of working. As FSRN goes to air, the procedure was underway with its results unknown.
Meanwhile, Administration officials defended their response to the ongoing disaster before a House panel today. They repeated their promise to make B-P pay for all costs associated with the spill. Tanya Snyder has more from Washington.
