What could be just a temporary victory for the Water Defenders

Army Blocks Drilling of Dakota Access Oil Pipeline – The New York Times

There is much more to this story of the Pipeline, the Water and the Sioux Native Americans than most people know. I don’t know much myself, but I want to find out. How about you?

  1. To me, this is the telling moment in that article:

    … the Trump administration could ultimately decide to allow the original, contested route.

    Mr. Trump owns stock in the company building the pipeline … but he has said his support has nothing to do with his investment.

    Anyone want to venture a guess on the final outcome?

    • I know what will happen if he doesn’t make sure to recuse himself from the process. I don’t think he’s dumb enough to fumble fingers around in the situation with everyone looking.
      Not sure the outcome, but I hope the pipeline reroutes elsewhere, not thru native american lands. And I hope people and the media keep a sharp watch out. I don’t think this is the end of the story

  2. ETP/XSL issued a press release stating they followed and passed all the regulatory procedures put in place. So I’m wondering why are the affected parties are protesting now? Were they not consulted? And why is President Obama passing the political football to the next administration?
