Caught red handed.

In comments protesting Keystone, foreigners play a key role
"When public comment period on the Keystone XL pipeline ended Friday, opponents of the project could declare victory, since they gathered a little more than 2 million comments on their side compared to the roughly 1 million in support of the proposal.

But there's a wrinkle to the slew of comments that the State Department received as it solicited public input on whether the pipeline--which would ship heavy crude from Canada to oil refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast--would serve the national interest: close to half of the comments in opposition came from people outside the United States.[Emphasis added]
"Avaaz, a liberal advocacy group with more than 34 million members worldwide, launched an online drive that translated into 954,827 comments against the pipeline, of which just 65,938 were from the U.S. Another 66,817 came from Canada."
