C-SPAN. Couple of threads already on this topic.

Midnight EST; Hearing will be repeated on CSPAN at 1:40am. Did not take notes. Revelations included serious concerns about interruptions in foreign sources of oil ( 50% of US requirements), insulin (70% of US requirements ) and materials for pharmaceuticals ( 80% of US requirements). Also revealed that Russia just requested $17mil from the US to help fix their nuclear reactors. I do hope that the full load of facts will appear in the media.
