Howard defends TransCanada’s presentation to Nebraska law enforcement that suggests anti-terrorist laws could be used if opponents get out of hand, should the president issue the permit to build Keystone…he’s quick to say extreme measures should be used only against extremists. . .

Howard says opponents have broken the law during construction of the southern part of the route…from Cushing, Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast.
