In early November, The Associated Press obtained an exclusive interview with the lead writer on a new documentary by a former government official about the controversial Keystone XL pipeline that is now being pushed by the U.S. government to the White House.
The film, “The Keystone Pipe: Oil Spills, Politics and the Future of the American Economy,” was written by former Treasury Department official Paul Craig Roberts and executive producer Chris Arnade.
The documentary was funded by the George Soros-backed Center for American Progress.
In it, Roberts recounts how he was instrumental in getting the Obama administration to sign off on the Keystone XL Pipeline in the early days of President George W. Bush’s administration.
It was the pipeline that would eventually carry crude oil from Canada to refineries in Texas and the Gulf Coast.
At the time, the pipeline was going to be built under the northern border of the U,S., where Keystone XL would cross the U.,S.
border in Texas.
As the project got underway, Roberts was in Washington, D.C., to meet with the president.
At one point, Roberts recalls, the president told him: “I know you’ve got a big pipeline coming in, but you gotta give us some time to make sure that we can get it done.
If we can’t do that, I’m gonna have to ask Congress to override the veto.”
The pipeline was ultimately approved by President Obama and the U.-S.
Congress in late 2010.
The president’s veto of the Keystone Pipeline was a controversial decision at the time.
It is also not the first time the Obama Administration has used the pipeline as a political tool.
In fact, the administration has used it for political purposes as well.
For example, in 2011, the Department of Energy began the construction of a $7 billion pipeline across the U-S.
from Texas to Michigan to carry crude from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada.
The pipeline would be the first of its kind in the U S. The project was also criticized by environmental groups, who said the pipeline would create a massive tar sands pipeline, and it would pollute the Gulf and Gulf Coast watersheds.
According to Roberts, he also was instrumental with getting the president to issue an executive order blocking construction of the pipeline.
The Keystone Pipeline has also been criticized for not being environmentally responsible, for the fact that it is being built in areas that have been devastated by the oil spill from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig.
In response to the pipeline, Roberts said he believes the pipeline is going to have a major effect on the environment.
“If you look at the tar sands, there are huge amounts of oil and natural gas that are coming out of these wells, and they are polluting our water,” he said.
“So, if we are going to build the Keystone, it is going be built in the areas that are most polluting.”
According to a 2014 analysis by the Environmental Defense Fund, Keystone XL will result in a 10 to 25 percent increase in greenhouse gas emissions over the course of the project.
The Environmental Defense Foundation also said in a report that the pipeline will result by displacing tens of thousands of people, with a number of communities having to relocate and relocate from the area that is being impacted.
The Obama Administration’s Keystone XL project has also caused a number problems.
As Breitbart Texas previously reported, the Keystone pipeline will cross the border of Canada, where it will be built underneath the northern-most border of America.
In April, the Obama’s Interior Department issued a permit for construction of two oil tankers to move the oil from the Keystone oil sands into Canada.
Keystone XL was also granted the Keystone permit to carry up to 8 billion gallons of oil a day from Canada, to be transported from refineries on the Gulf.
In July, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved construction of four oil tanker pipelines that would carry oil from Texas through Oklahoma to Texas refineries.
The projects would transport up to 30 million barrels of oil per day through the Gulf in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.
The new Keystone pipeline would then be transported by the two tankers through Texas and Oklahoma.
According the Environmental Justice Action Network, the proposed Keystone XL Pipelines “would provide billions of gallons of crude oil to a foreign nation that is currently exporting crude oil through the United States and into the Gulf, where a growing number of Gulf states are facing extreme water contamination due to oil spills and environmental destruction.”
The Environmental Justice Network also noted that the project would be a major factor in the development of the tar sand oil and gas industry.
The proposed Keystone Pipeline project would also require massive amounts of water for the pipeline and for other pipeline construction projects.
The EPA has also approved the Keystone Oil Sands Pipeline, which would carry 1.6 billion gallons per day of oil from Alberta, Canada, into the Bakken Shale.
In addition, the EPA is also approving
