WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is calling the successful "kill" for the blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico a milestone in his administration's response to the disaster that leaked hundreds of millions of gallons of oil.

The federal government's point man on the response, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said Sunday that tests show BP's well "is effectively dead" and poses no further threat.

Obama said in a statement that his administration remains committed to doing everything possible to ensure that the Gulf Coast recovers fully from the disaster.

Obama pledged that his administration will continue to work closely with people who live in the Gulf region as they rebuild their livelihoods and restore the environment.
