Gulf oil spill setback: Dome doesn't work as planned

A mammoth white containment dome placed over a leaking oil well 5,000 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico was moved away from the well Saturday after ice-like crystals clogged the massive steel-and-concrete box. "I wouldn't say it failed yet," said BP chief operating officer Doug Suttles. "What I would say is what we attempted to do last night didn't work." But Suttles also said he didn't know how the problem could be fixed.
