The 2007-signed FTA had been held up due to concerns over auto and beef industries, with Obama hoping the new pact will be a model for future FTAs. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Obama Trade Document Leaked, Revealing New Corporate Powers

Obama Trade Document Leaked, Revealing New Corporate Powersfrom opednews.com: A critical document from President Barack Obama's free trade negotiations with eight Pacific nations was leaked online early Wednesday morning, revealing that the administration intends to bestow radical new political powers upon multinational corporations, contradicting prior promises.. The new leak follows substantial controversy surrounding the secrecy of the talks, in which some members of Congress have complained they are not being given the same access to trade documents that corporate officials receive ... Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has been so incensed by the lack of access as to introduce legislation requiring further disclosure. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has gone so far as to leak a separate document from the talks on his website. Other Senators are considering writing a letter to Ron Kirk, the top trade negotiator under Obama, demanding more disclosure.
