It’s not like we’ll be need­ing any of it

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Re: your ar­ti­cle in the June 27 edi­tion ti­tled “Frozen Trea­sure Trove — Un­der the Arc­tic Ocean, a great sea of oil awaits” (page 16), Pres­i­dent Obama’s State Depart­ment is giv­ing away seven re­source-rich Amer­i­can Alaskan is­lands to the Rus­sians. Along with the is­lands go hun­dreds of thou­sands of square miles of seabeds with bil­lions of bar­rels of oil and mil­lions of pounds of fish.

The Alaska Leg­is­la­ture has re­peat­edly called for an end to the give­away. But the State Depart­ment has not re­versed its plans. More pres­sure is needed from the rest of the coun­try.
