White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Friday that approving the Keystone Pipeline would “sacrifice American sovereignty.”
Huh?
Breitbart.com reported, via Free Republic:

In a press conference on Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded to the recent new Keystone pipeline bill passed by Congress earlier this week, as the Washington Examiner reports:

“It would be preemptively sacrificing American sovereignty” to approve the pipeline, White Hosue [sic] Press Secretary Jay Carney said, because a route for the northern portion of the pipeline has not been established.

“The United States Congress — a very important body, takes American security and sovereignty very seriously, or should — is saying that we will, in advance — blind — approve a proposal for a pipeline, a proposal for which does not exist,” he also said.

The Keystone XL pipeline has undergone 3 years of review, but the State Department refused to grant a permit after pressure from environmentalists demanding the route through Nebraska be changed.
