No pipeline going to Iowa

The Army Corp of Engineers will not immediately grant the Dakota Access Pipeline the right to cross the Missouri River next to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, officials said Sunday.
The National Congress of American Indians, which has been leading, the protests against the controversial pipeline’s plans in the Dakotas, praised the move in a statement.
“Today the Army Corp of Engineers announced its decision not to grant the easement to the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing the Missouri immediately above the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, and to study alternate routes,” the statement said.
The U.S. Army confirmed in a statement Sunday afternoon that it will not grant an easement for the pipeline.
I heard the city folks did not want it in their backyard, and shoved it off on the natives. This story:

“I actually read about the original pathway, or an original pathway of the pipeline, in our local newspaper,” she says. “It’s our understanding, and I’ve talked to everybody who I know who would have known about it in advance, that we never even in Bismarck had to make an objection. The pathway was moved away from our drinking supply without our even needing to go to a meeting or write a letter.”
Van Fossan says she believes a decision was independently made to reroute the pipeline to its current location. Bismarck city officials did not respond to a request for comment.
One this news came out, then the question was, who is picking on the little guy? The bozo Senators from that state were no where to be found, but I hear they were the skunks in all this. Then there is the usual corrupt, unelected commission in there somewhere.

But, this is the internet, we are all getting our triple decoder rings, the skunks will be getting caught.
