blood for oil

This discussion on Roger L. Simmon is terrific. Be sure to read the comments to learn how France and Russia were bribed by Saddam --the governments were bribed-- and yet the New York Times is only interested in reporting that a few American companies took relatively trivial kickbacks.

One of the biggest corruption scandals in history isn't worth covering. But if a few American oil companies were involved at the fringes, well that's news.
