The embattled CEO stuck to his script Thursday, expression contrition and offering empathy. But when pressed for details and explanations, he wouldn't go beyond: "I think it's too early to reach conclusions."
"I understand people want a simple answer about why this happened and who is to blame," BP CEO Tony Hayward said in his prepared remarks. "The truth, however, is that this is a complex accident, caused by an unprecedented combination of failures."
BP CEO Tony Hayward will be grilled before Congress Thursday, nearly two months into the Gulf Oil spill. Hayward is expected to express empathy toward the victims, but lawmakers predict he's in for a "very unpleasant" hearing.
