Obama Cancels Asia Trip as Concern on Spill Mounts
"WASHINGTON - President Obama canceled his trip to Australia, Indonesia and Guam late Thursday night as oil continued to stream into the Gulf of Mexico in what he has called the worst environmental disaster in American history.
"His decision came as officials reported progress containing the oil leak at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.
"Mr. Obama is to visit the Gulf Friday to assess the situation and meet with officials responding to the crisis. While the White House statement offered no reason for scratching the Asia trip this time, officials in recent days had grown increasingly convinced that it was untenable for the president to leave the country for a week with the oil spill still unchecked."
