Two weeks ago, most news sources mentioned that four international oil companies (not American) are being awarded no-bid contracts to receive oil produced from Iraq (6/20, Business, “Iraq prepares to tie up deals with oil companies”). There was almost no more media discussion on the topic, but this was one of the major news releases of the year.
According to disillusioned White House insiders, this is what Dick Cheney has been working on since before the Iraq invasion. This is the reason for the invasion of Iraq, the deaths and serious injuries of tens of thousands of American soldiers, the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi deaths and the total devastation of Iraq. Not to mention the financial costs to the American taxpayer. And no one seems to care or to be outraged.
Life must be great out there in America to ignore such examples of criminal activity from a renegade administration. Are you numb or just don’t care anymore?
