Obama giving away seven Alaska oil rich islands to Russians in total secrecy

The Obama administration, despite the nation’s economic woes, effectively killed the job-producing Keystone Pipeline last month.
The Arab Spring is turning the oil production of Libya and other Arab nations over to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Iraq is distancing itself from the U.S. And everyone recognizes that Iran, whose crude supplies are critical to the European economy, will do anything it can to frustrate America’s strategic interests.
In the face of all of this, Obama insists on cutting back U.S. oil potential with outrageous restrictions.

Part of Obama’s apparent war against U.S. energy independence includes a foreign-aid program that directly threatens my state’s sovereign territory.

Obama’s State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin.

The seven endangered islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.

The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabeds surrounding the islands.
The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake.

The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska and Siberia.

Astoundingly, our federal government itself drew the line to put these seven Alaskan islands on the Russian side.
But as an executive agreement, it could be reversed with the stroke of a pen by President Obama or Secretary Clinton.

The agreement was negotiated in total secrecy.

The state of Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment.

This is despite the fact the Alaska Legislature has passed resolutions of opposition – but the State Department doesn’t seem to care.

The imperiled Arctic Ocean islands include Wrangel, Bennett, Jeannette and Henrietta.
Wrangel became American in 1881 with the landing of the U.S. Revenue Marine ship Thomas Corwin.
The landing party included the famed naturalist John Muir. It is 3,000 square miles in size.

Northwest of Wrangel are the DeLong Islands, named for George Washington DeLong, the captain of USS Jeannette. Also in 1881, he discovered and claimed these three islands for the United States. He named them for the voyage co-sponsor, New York City newspaper publisher James Gordon Bennett. The ship’s crew received a hero’s welcome back in Washington, and Congress awarded them gold medals.

In the Bering Sea at the far west end of the Aleutian chain are Copper Island, Sea Lion Rock and Sea Otter Rock. They were ceded to the U.S. in Seward’s 1867 treaty with Russia.

Now is the time for the Obama administration to stand up for U.S. and Alaskan rights and invaluable resources. The State Department’s maritime agreement is a loser – it gives us nothing in return for giving up Alaska’s sovereign territory and invaluable resources. We won the Cold War and should start acting like it.

The Obama administration must stop the giveaway immediately

The agreement was " NEGOTIATED in Total Secrecy ".

The state of Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment.

This is despite the fact the Alaska Legislature has passed resolutions of opposition – but the State Department doesn’t seem to care!
