BP, Coast Guard Dance Around Who's in Charge in Grand Isle, LA!
This video was shot on a beach in Grand Isle, LA. Members of the press speak with the Coast Guard reps about who's in charge in Grand Isle: The final question of the conference asked who was in charge – BP or the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard’s spokeswoman said that while BP was the "responsible party," the Coast Guard was "overseeing" BP’s operations. When pressed on what that meant, BP said they work "in tandem" on all decisions. "Coast Guard is in every meeting," he said. The Coast Guard then stepped in and said that wasn’t quite correct, as the CG oversees what BP does – it doesn’t make decisions with them. But they step in"when something’s not going right."
