Obama Compares Gulf Spill to 9/11 Attacks

Obama angered families and friends of victims of the 9/11 terror attacks when he compared the tragedy at the Twin Towers to the environmental disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico.

The U.S. president said there were ‘echoes’ between the Gulf of Mexico disaster and the Al Qaeda suicide attacks which killed 2,995 people, including 67 Britons.

He said that just as the events of September 11, 2001, had profoundly shaped ‘our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy’, so the oil disaster would shape thinking on the environment and energy for years to come.
