Coast Guard says it never foresaw this oil spill

WASHINGTON (AP) - Coast Guard Rear Adm. Peter Neffenger says the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is beyond what anyone anticipated.

Neffenger tells senators Monday that, at a minimum, officials will go back and look at how future response plans should be revised. Neffenger is the deputy national incident commander at the Coast Guard.

Neffenger and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (neh-pahl-ih-TAN'-oh) are the first two administration officials to testify on Capitol Hill about the deadly oil spill.
