BP says it has enlisted the help of James Lee Witt, the former FEMA director in the Clinton administration who has become known as an expert on disaster response.

Bob Dudley, BP's new point man for the oil response, says he asked Witt to go to New Orleans to review what the company is doing and how it can improve its response to the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Dudley said Witt is offering BP "an independent overview" on the response and ideas for the future. Speaking with reporters in Washington, Dudley also said a relief well being drilled in the Gulf is advancing.

He says he's confident the spill will be plugged by the end of August.
