In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the commentary audio file.

Due to time constraints, just a quick synopsis of the news this morning...

The Gulf oil spill continues relatively unchecked as the Obama administration creates a "Special Commission". Due to other federal ineffectualities, Louisiana has gone ahead with it's own plan for containment. More below the synopsis.

The spring Afghanistan offensive is on with the Taliban attacking our bases, Kandahar, and Bagram Air base.

They're dealin'! A US couple has been kidnapped in Yemen and the Yemeni government has been contacted by the kidnappers.

More News:

Thanks to the efforts of an organization called "No More Guantánamos,", two New England towns have voted to welcome Guantanamo detainees who have been cleared for release, and similar actions are being planned in other locations.

More information about the continuing BP Deepwater/Horizon disaster:

From the Miami Herald: Gulf oil spill makes landfall, blackening Louisiana beaches

The US may have plans to NUKE the Deepwater/Horizon site with a Bunker Buster , perhaps 'cauterizing' the 'leak' (perhaps not!).

There is also a Benzene hazard to everyone in the region. Benzene being highly toxic and a known carcinogen. There is allegedly a FEMA plan for the evacuation of Tampa Bay as well. More on those topics here.

The map above came from the Oil Spill Academic Task Force (OSATF) Gulf oil spill resource site. Imagery, projections, legal, ecological and economic implications.. More.

In other environmental nightmares...
Who Speaks for the Trees? NOT Greenpeace!

Greenpeace (and the NGOs) have hung the entire native population of Canada out to dry.

In the "Quick, look over there, the Russians repress investigative journalists!" department: Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, had his passport confiscated upon arriving in Australia recently.
Glenn Greenwald wrote earlier this week about how the founder of Wikileaks had his passport confiscated upon arriving in Australia. Julian Assange is perhaps the most noteworthy investigative journalist in the world today, and he has made a career out of dragging into the sunlight information that powerful people want to keep hidden. I personally consider this a rather noteworthy story but, as best I can tell, the US media has largely been silent.

As The Times reported:
The Australian founder of the whistleblower website Wikileaks had his passport confiscated by police when he arrived in Melbourne last week.

Julian Assange, who does not have an official home base and travels every six weeks, told the Australian current affairs program Dateline that immigration officials had said his passport was going to be cancelled because it was looking worn.

However he then received a letter from the Australian Communication Minister Steven Conroy’s office stating that the recent disclosure on Wikileaks of a blacklist of websites the Australian government is preparing to ban had been referred to the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

Last year Wikileaks published a confidential list of websites that the Australian government is preparing to ban under a proposed internet filter – which in turn caused the whistleblower site to be placed on that list.
How is this the slightest bit relevant to Russia? [Find Out Here]

...and last but not least... things also get strange in the "Celebrity Industrial Complex" as Vanity Fair accuses itself of copyright infringement.
