The Obama administration will announce this afternoon it is rejecting a Canadian firm’s application for a permit to build and operate a massive oil pipeline across the U.S.-Canada border, according to sources who have been briefed on the matter.As we seek to curtail Iran's oil exports,Obama curtails ours and Canada's.At least he is consistent,"stupid is,as stupid does."
However the administration will allow TransCanada to reapply after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive habitat of Nebraska’s Sandhills. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns will make the announcement, which comes in response to a congressionally-mandated deadline of Feb. 21 for action on the proposed Keystone pipeline.
Doug Powers @ Michelle Malkin made this comment:
At this point, the “alternate route” for the Keystone project’s oil appears to lead to China.
