    Obama Faces Another Setback on Drilling Moratorium
    A federal judge has rejected the latest attempt by the Obama administration to continue its six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. The White House imposed the ban last month as the BP oil spill spiraled into what many have called the worst environmental disaster in US history. On Thursday, US District Judge Martin Feldman refused to stay his June 22 order lifting the moratorium. A Reagan appointee, Feldman has extensive stock holdings in energy companies, including Transocean, which owned the Deepwater Horizon oil rig where the explosion occurred, and Halliburton, which also performed work at the site. Feldman also owns stock in two of BP’s largest shareholders, BlackRock and JPMorgan Chase.

    Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Enron CEO
    The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling in a decision that will make it harder for prosecutors to file charges in corruption cases. The Court threw out a law that makes it a crime to “deprive another of the intangible right of honest services." The ruling could affect the sentence of Enron’s Jeffrey Skilling and newspaper executive Conrad Black

    Feds Won't Charge Blackwater in Sudan Sanctions Case
    by Warren P. Strobel, Jonathan S. Landay and Joseph Neff

    WASHINGTON - The security contractor Blackwater Worldwide tried for two years to secure lucrative defense business in Southern Sudan while the country was under U.S. economic sanctions, according to current and former U.S. officials and hundreds of pages of documents reviewed by McClatchy.

    The effort to drum up new business in East Africa by Blackwater owner Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL who had close ties with top officials in the George W. Bush White House and the CIA, became a major element in a continuing four-year federal investigation into allegations of sanctions violations, illegal exports and bribery.

    The Obama administration, however, has decided for now not to bring criminal charges against Blackwater, according to a U.S. official close to the case.

    Instead, the U.S. government and the private military contractor are negotiating a multimillion-dollar fine to settle allegations that Blackwater violated U.S. export control regulations in Sudan, Iraq and elsewhere. Prince renamed the company Xe Services in an apparent attempt to shake off a reputation for recklessness, and this month put it up for sale.

    Had the company been indicted, it could have been suspended from doing business with the U.S. government, and a conviction could have brought debarment from all government contracts, including providing guard services for the CIA and State Department in war zones. In recent weeks the Obama administration awarded the firm a $120 million State Department security contract, and about $100 million in new CIA work.

    The story of Blackwater's efforts in Sudan is a tale of mixed motives that echo an earlier era of overseas empires, of evangelical Christians who offered to help defend Christian and animist Southern Sudan from the Muslim Arab military dictatorship in the north, but also sought to exploit the region's oil and mineral wealth.

    According to two former senior U.S. officials, the firm headed by Prince, who's long been active in evangelical groups, at one point proposed a broad defense package that would have required the south to pledge as much as half its mineral wealth to pay for Blackwater's services

    Appeals Court Maintains Reversal of Deepwater Drilling Ban

    A federal appeals court has rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to reinstate a six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. The ban was imposed in May, but a U.S. District Judge with extensive energy industry financial ties struck it down last month. On Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans refused to stay the lower court decision. The Interior Department is expected to revise the ban order to address issues raised by the courts.
