BP 'confident' in cleanup

(CNN) – Cleanup and containment efforts in the Gulf of Mexico are now a race against time. BP says it's doing everything it can to try and bottle up the disastrous oil spill and minimize the damage.

Doug Suttles is the company's chief operating officer for exploration and production. He spoke to us on Wednesday's American Morning, saying he's confident in the company's efforts.

    @ howie ~~ EXACTLY!!

    Where were the safety valve shut offs and WHY were they not deployed? this is totally ridiculous.. PLUS, they were drilling WAY past the depth of their permit. I have no faith in the committee and regulators of Off Shore Drilling VIA our government.

    wow!! who was asleep at the wheel?? somebody should have made sure BP could have contained ANY spill before we allowed them to drill 1 inch into our seabed!! what went on in that meeting?? we ask BP if they can handle a massive leak, they say "why sure we can" and that's good enough for us?? poppycock!!! any 4th grader would have said " well then prove it" once again greed overcame common sense, and we the people lose. when will we learn?
