Why is the Obama Regime Giving Russia 7 Oil Rich AK Islands?

I know the first comment it's WND, so the red herring is it can't be true, well google it and you will see it's 100% true. Some of these Islands the size of DL are diamond mines of oil. They make ANWR looking meaningless. Yet AK can't drill there and worse yet we are giving it away to our enemies in the East (or West in that direction)! WTF could be the rational behind this!

If it's for the environment, then why give it to Russia? Russia will start drilling ASAP with no EPA stopping them. We boneheadedly disallow drilling there.

It makes no sense!

Obama’s giveaway: Oil-rich islands to Russia
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.

But Alaska will have to return.

Weak try and not true. These Islands are under the sovereignty of the American State of Alaska (you know the one your country sold to us for pesos on the dollar )! Hence the reason it's called giving them to Russia!

If it happens it won't be because Obama failed it will be because Congress has refused to act for YEARS. This one falls on Republicans and Dems equally.

It's a prelude to our so-called "president's" plan to hand back all of Alaska to Russia by way of apology (he's so cute when he do dat) for the raw deal Seward gave them.

Ah, Delaware. Just so you know, the abbreviation for Delaware is DE, not DL. I was wondering what the hell you were talking about.

Everyone knows Americans are uneducated and ignorant, should have been better in school and study geography.

Residents of Alaska should be taught the Russian language or to collect the bags.

Why is the Obama Regime Giving Russia 7 Oil Rich AK Islands?

Because they paid for his education

Obama’s giveaway: Oil-rich islands to Russia
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.
He's giving it to them so he can buy oil from them.

Now let's get back to talking about rubbers.
