This morning the President spoke on the news from the Gulf, emphasizing that while there may be good news, the work is not done containing the leak, and will not be until the relief wells are finished and functioning [...]

First, you can watch the video below and President Obama's speech. Then, use the beginning of the transcript (00'00" to 02'12")  and fill in the gaps with the missing words. Beware, some words appear twice, : one of them even appears... 6 times ! 

His opening remarks :

"I wanted to give everyone a quick update on the situation in the Gulf.  As we all know, a new ...................... was ...................... over the BP oil well earlier this week.  This larger more sophisticated ...................... was ...................... to give us greater control over the oil ...................... as we complete the relief wells that are necessary to stop the leak.

Now, our scientists and outside experts have met through the night and continue this morning to analyze the ...................... from the well ...................... test.  What they're working to determine is whether we can safely ......................  the well using the new ...................... without creating new problems, including possibly ...................... new oil leaks in the sea ...................... .

Now, even if a ......................  is not possible, this new ...................... and the additional ...................... being placed in the Gulf will be able to contain up to 80,000 ...................... a day, which should allow us to capture nearly all the oil until the well is ...................... .  It’s important to remember that prior to installation of this new ...................... , we were collecting on average about 25,000 ...................... a day. 

For almost 90 days of this ...................... disaster, all of us have taken hope in the image of clean water instead of oil ...................... in the Gulf.  But it is our responsibility to make sure that we’re taking a prudent course of action and not simply looking for a ......................  solution that could lead to even greater problems down the road.

So to summarize, the new ...................... is good news.  Either we will be able to stop the ...................... , or we will be able to use it to capture almost all of the oil until the relief well is done.  But we’re not going to know for certain which ...................... makes sense until additional ...................... is in.  And all the American people should rest assured that all of these decisions will be ...................... on the science and what’s best for the people of the Gulf.[...]"
