Coast Guard commandant may call on National Guard
U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert J. Papp answered critics of the Coast Guard's response to the BP oil gusher, saying the nation wasn't ready for the disaster, which has left crude spewing into the Gulf of Mexico since April 20. He also said a federal law limiting deployments for reservists might force the Coast Guard to lean on the National Guard for help during the long response to the disaster.
