image BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg met with President Barack Obama (whose time was extended beyond the 20 minutes that was penciled in for this crisis) today.  When they emerged from the White House, AFP reports:

Emerging from White House talks with President Barack Obama, Svanberg said the British energy giant had "always met our obligations and responsibilities."

"We have made clear from the first moment of this tragedy that we will live up to all our legitimate responsibilities," Svanberg said, adding all claims for compensation would be met "swiftly and fairly."

"We will look after the people affected, and we will repair the damage to this region, the environmental damage to this region and to the economy," he added.

Obama said he had urged the BP bosses to remember when they were meeting in the boardroom to "keep in mind those individuals, that they are desperate, may lose business that have been in their families for two or three generations."

Svanberg agreed, saying: "We care about the small people."

How touching that BP cares about the little people, well not really.  What world is this guy living in?  I’m hope this state was due to some cultural disconnect/misunderstanding.
