Barack Obama Breaking News: Obama Taps Ron Binz to Lead Energy Regulatory Body

by Wochit 0:59 mins

President Barack Obama has tapped renewable energy advocate Ron Binz as chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the agency that has made headlines in the past year with tough enforcement actions against Wall Street banks. President Barack Obama is expected to announce that the United States is suspending U.S. trade benefits for Bangladesh after two tragedies in the past year in the country's garment sector that have cost more than 1,200 lives. According to diplomats and U.S. officials briefed on the plans, the CIA has begun moving weapons to Jordan from a network of secret warehouses and plans to start arming small groups of vetted Syrian rebels within a month, expanding U.S. support of moderate forces battling President Bashar al-Assad.
