WASHINGTON (AP) - In a story Aug. 4, The Associated Press reported that a former campaign spokesman for President Barack Obama created a version of a science report that concluded much of the BP oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico was gone. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said a technical glitch wrongly placed the name of the former campaign spokesman as creator of the NOAA science report and that he had no role in its creation.
