[May 03, 2010]  WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration is defending the federal response to the Gulf Coast oil spill.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the government has taken an "all hands on deck" approach to the spill since the day the BP oil well ruptured off the coast of Louisiana following an explosion.

Napolitano says that as the situation evolved and BP officials realized that more oil was spewing than first thought, the government has coordinated federal, state and local resources with the oil company's response.

Napolitano spoke on "Fox News Sunday."
