A new ACLU report documents the use of migrant workers by contractors working on American military bases and at embassies and other government facilities abroad, especially in Iraq, Afghanistan and other military hot spots.
We just broke a major story at the Michigan Messenger on the oil spill in that state. We were told by two public officials that an Enbridge employee was notified and was on the site of the leak on Sunday night, 9-12 hours before the company says they first became aware of a potential leak. The documents confirming this are under seal by the federal government, but two separate officials went on the record and told us they exist.
Enbridge, the company that owns the pipeline, has insisted that they got first word of a possible leak at 10:30 am EST on Monday morning and they called the federal government a few hours later.
