The Gulf Oil Spill and the Long-Term Recovery

Hosted by

BP may finally "kill" the oil well this week, but there’s dispute about its strategy for long-term cleanup. Has the Gulf been a dumping ground for American industry? How are Gulf residents coping with two major disasters in five years? Also, President Obama on his promise to end the war in Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates wants to know what BlackBerry users are saying in their emails.  Will there be a ban from the country or a compromise?
