UNDATED (AP) — Action on three fronts today in the Gulf oil spill.
First, Attorney General Eric Holder is to visit the Gulf Coast today to see areas affected by the oil spill and meet with state attorneys general and federal prosecutors. Several senators have asked the Justice Department to determine whether criminal or civil laws were broken.
Meanwhile, President Barack Obama meets for the first time today with the two co-chairs of the special commmission he's forming to investigate the accident.
And, while the politics plays out on land, BP's robot subs are hard at work on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico, preparing to trim the leaking pipe in hopes of installing a newly designed cap or to divert the oil to the surface.
