Reflections from the Alaskan Oil Spill, April 7, 1989

On April 7, 1989, President George H.W. Bush held a press conference to discuss the then current Alaskan oil spill crisis. It has been 21 years since the crash of the Exxon Valdez and today the Prince William Sound continues its struggle to endure the damage inflicted by the spill. In lieu of events currently taking place in the Gulf, this video is worth watching. There are cameos by rather familiar faces, including President Bush 41, Dick Cheney, Ted Stevens, and William Kelly.
