What you're not being told about that pipeline

FRIDAY 1/20/12- On Wednesday, President Obama rejected quick approval of the TransCanada Keystone Pipeline. The GOP says his decision kills 20,000 potential jobs, but is that just Republican rhetoric and political spin? Greg Palast thinks so, and is here to explain why. Greg is a BBC investigative journalist and national best-selling author, best known in the US for uncovering Katherine Harris' purge of black voters from Florida's voter rolls in the 2000 presidential election.

The plan by Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. would carry tar sands oil from western Canada across a 1,700-mile pipeline across six U.S. states to Texas refineries. Whistleblowers have warned that the safety software on major US pipelines is deliberately flawed.
