President Obama got a rude welcome to the 68th U.N. General Assembly gathering Tuesday before he even opened his mouth when the president of Brazil harshly criticized the United States for widespread spying.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has postponed a state visit to Washington next month after reports based on leaked National Security Agency documents showed that her communications with top aides had been intercepted.
More documents that were leaked by Edward Snowden reveal that the National Security Agency put Brazil's state-run oil company under secret surveillance — though what for is largely an unknown.
Off the coast of Rio de Janeiro — below a mile of water and two miles of shifting rock, sand and salt — is an ultradeep sea of oil that could turn Brazil into the world's fourth-largest oil producer, behind Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States.
A huge underground river appears to be flowing thousands of feet beneath the Amazon River, Brazilian scientists said Thursday.
It's no surprise that gas prices are on the rise as President Obama returns from his truncated excursion to Rio. The commander in chief has shown more interest in helping Brazilians develop their energy resources than he has in helping ease the pain of Americans stung by spiraling prices at the pump.
