WASHINGTON/VENICE, Louisiana (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Saturday blamed the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill on "a breakdown of responsibility" at energy giant BP Plc as he unveiled a commission to investigate the disaster.

Obama, in his weekly radio and Internet address, also said offshore oil drilling could only go forward if there were assurances that such accidents would not happen again.
