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

According to British Petroleum the "Gulf Gusher" is shut down, or should we say they're testing to see if it is. A newer tighter cap has been installed and now they're going to check pressure and attempt a diversion to storage tanks. If it DOESN'T WORK, there will be leakage PLUS pressure on other flaws along the pipe leading to a potentially larger flow. Also, damage payments have been cut (Perhaps to avoid their OWN financial demise) by BP and they're 'playing games' with the victims compensation.

...and then there's this nugget, from Juan Cole @ Informed Comment:
The Times of London reports on two leaked memos from the British government under Labor Prime Minister Gordon Brown that strongly suggest that the Libyan accused of planning the Lockerbie airliner bombing was released in return for BP drilling rights in Libya. (H/t Crooks & Liars).

There are three weeks left before congress goes on summer recess and the president wins one with three Republicans dedicating themselves to vote for the finance reform bill. Another possible break for the president, the appointment of a new Democratic senator by the governor of West Virginia to replace the recently passed lion of the senate chambers, Robert Byrd. The appointment will last until the November elections when it is possible the governor himself will run for the office.

It's the six month anniversary of the Haitian earthquake while the refugees still wait for adequate housing and the storm season begins to threaten the lowlands where the camps are. The wealthy own the high ground, and are not inclined to encamp the earthquake's victims on their golf courses. As this New York Times article from April makes clear, many who were previously not refugees now are, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Late breaking news... George Steinbrenner, the owner of the New York Yankees passed overnight. More on this in the commentary.

In OTHER News:

The attempted dismemberment of Native American sovereign rights continues in the 21st century, Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) edition:
For some 30 years, the Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse), often known as the Six Nations Confederation, have been accustomed to traveling internationally from and back to North America on Haudenosaunee passports. Now, however, the United States government has evidently taken issue with the Haudenosaunee passports.

As a result, the Iroquois Nationals lacrosse team has been delayed from its scheduled July 11 departure from New York to Manchester, England for the 14-day 2010 World Lacrosse Championships.

The United Kingdom government has refused to grant travel visas to the 23 Haudenosaunee players because the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Homeland Security have refused to guarantee that the United States will allow the Iroquois Nationals players to return to Haudenosaunee territory by re-crossing the international boundary of the United States.

Even under the George W. Bush administration, the United States government did not attempt to stop the Haudenosaunee from traveling internationally on Haudenosaunee passports. Now it appears that the U.S. government may have shifted its position. Under President Barack Obama's watch, it appears that the United States is not going to honor Haudenosaunee passports despite Obama's statements during his election campaign in Indian country that he was going to respect the nation-to-nation relationship between the United States and indigenous nations such as the Haudenosaunee.

Fidel Castro went live on Cuba TV yesterday. He cited Iran as Barack Obama's most contentious issue. A google translation of the Cuban news coverage is here.
