"I have been told flat out ... to expect an all out fight to the finish to keep this from happening," said Bisson...

#3 There are drill sights all over Arizona(core samples searching for minerals),if done right,after a year or so you would never know they were there(unless you know what to look for).I'm sure AP knows what I'm talking about.

#4 Every drop of oil edxtracted from Alaska means less money for Al Quaida.
