Kucinich Reminds Congress And The People What It's Oil About

The Truth About Oil and Iraq | Kucinich for President 2008:
This administration has led Congress into thinking that this bill is about fair distribution of oil revenues. In fact, as I mentioned earlier, except for three scant lines, the entire 33-page hydrocarbon law creates a structure to facilitate the privatization of Iraq oil.

Now, the war in Iraq is a stain on American history. Let us not further besmirch our Nation by participating in an outrageous exploitation of a nation which is in shambles due to the U.S. intervention.
And without the World Wide Web, I probably would have missed this. It's not that I didn't know this already, but that somebody in Congress made it clear to the floor that this is the case, yet they go on as if they never heard such a thing.
