BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - BP's incoming CEO says it's time to scale
back the massive effort to clean up the oil spill, but adds that
the commitment to make things right is the same as ever.
Bob Dudley was in Biloxi, Miss., on Friday to announce that
former Federal Emergency Management Agency chief James Lee Witt
will help BP with the recovery.
Dudley says it's not too soon to scale back the cleanup, and on
beaches where there is no oil there's no need for crews in hazmat
He adds, however, that there is no pullback in BP's commitment
to clean up the spill.
Dudley rejects the idea that the environmental effects of the
spill have been overblown. He says that anyone who thinks it wasn't
a catastrophe must be far away from it.
