Kucinich Explains the LIBOR Scandal

Congressman Dennis Kucinich: "We don’t know just how deep this scandal goes. But the fact is that if a fundamental component of our financial system has been or is being manipulated, we have the right to know about it. Banks are not above the law and they should not be allowed to operate in secrecy, especially when they have a history of taxpayer bailout and when we are forced to rely on them to provide capital for economic growth."

A new study being done by the Department of Energy may provide some of the first solid answers to a controversial question: Can gas drilling fluids migrate and pose a threat to drinking water? 

A company in southwestern Pennsylvania is giving researchers access to a commercial drilling site, said Richard Hammack, a spokesman for the National Energy Technology Laboratory in Pittsburgh. 

The firm let scientists conduct baseline tests, allowed tracing elements to be added to hydraulic fracturing fluids and agreed to allow follow-up monitoring. That should let scientists see whether the drilling fluids move upward or sideway from the Marcellus Shale, which is 8,100 feet deep at that spot. 

"It’s like the perfect laboratory," Hammack said.   Hammack said he believes this is the first time such research has been done on a commercial gas well.

Congress Considers Prosecutions of Reporters Over Leaked Information

Annika McGinnis, McClatchy Newspapers: "In response to New York Times stories that relied on leaks of sensitive national-security information, a House of Representatives panel on Wednesday discussed legislation that could allow journalists to be prosecuted for disclosing such information. Army Col. Ken Allard testified to a House Judiciary subcommittee that the extent of national security leaks is ‘unprecedented’ in American history. Recent examples include the Times’ investigations of President Barack Obama’s terrorist ‘kill list’ and American cyberattacks on Iran."
