Is Senator Bennett's weekend visit to Alaska North Slope merely a staged photo shoot?
"I am troubled that drilling proponents plan to bring senators and other decision-makers to the refuge this time of year to sow only one point of view," Mahsi Choo, leader of a group of Alaska natives who live along caribou migration paths to the refuge, wrote to senators planning to visit.
"To see the wilderness and wildlife aspects one must come during the proper season, which would be in the summer months."
Seven Republican Senators are staunchly opposed to Bush's engergy plan. The administration agrues that Wildlife preservation and drilling can go hand in hand??? see article nice photo of polar bear and cubs at refuge.
