Amidst possible changes in BP's management, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says the oil giant cannot leave the Gulf of Mexico until it's met its responsibilities there, regardless of who is chief executive.
Robert Gibbs, White House Spokesman said "If he (Tony Hayward) makes the decision, if the board makes the decision for him to leave, that's one thing. What is clear is BP cannot, should not and will not leave the Gulf without meeting its responsibility to plug the well, to clean up the damage that's been caused and to compensate those that have been damaged. There are obligations and responsibilities as the responsible party that BP has and regardless of who leads the company, those obligations and responsibilities need to be met."
