This Week on 'Brian Ross Investigates': Reporter Exposes Houston's 'Libyan Connection'


The most watched story of the show's first year was a cry for help by the parents of one U.S. soldier accused of killing innocent Afghan civilians, who said their son's real enemy was not Taliban insurgents but a fellow American in his own Army unit.

One of the other U.S. soldiers accused in that "thrill kill" case, Spc. Jeremy Morlock, recently pleaded guilty to murder and is set to testify against his one-time comrades in their upcoming trials.

Also on this week's show, see a new report on the Obama administration's green energy program, and whether major Obama backers benefited from the program's half a billion dollars in loans and grants. In a joint investigation with the Center for Public Integrity, ABC News found that while the program has been slow in distributing funds, and its criteria for choosing recipients have been criticized by auditors, companies linked to political allies have received loans, grants and loan guarantees.

Congress has given the Energy Department authority to distribute billions of dollars in public funds to help stimulate the economy and seed a new generation of clean energy firms. A joint investigation by ABC News and the Center for Public Integrity that aired on "World News with Diane Sawyer" found that Westly is just one of several political allies of the president who have ties to companies receiving chunks of that money through loans, grants, or loan guarantees.
