The government's point man on the Gulf oil spill says there is some progress in containing the leaking well. But Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen says he doesn't think anyone should be pleased as long as there is oil in the water.

Allen tells CNN's "State of the Union" that oil company BP needs to understand that it must finish drilling a relief well or quickly cap or kill the leaking the well.

He calls the spill "an insidious enemy that's attacking our shores" and "holding the Gulf hostage."
