Obama speech fails to stop critics

Mississippi residents tell Al Jazeera they want action, not just talk, to stop BP oil spill.

    Residents in the town Pass Christian in Mississippi, whom Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler spoke to, were not impressed with Barack Obama's "battle plan" to tackle the BP oil spill.

    They said they wanted to see action, rather than talk, criticised the US president for the six-month moratorium on deep sea drilling and said that the government's efforts fell short of what was needed.
