Was the Iraq War About Grabbing Oil … Or Keeping It Off the Market?Submitted by Calgary4Paul on Sat, 03/30/2013 - 17:02
"U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, 4-Star General (and CENTCOM commander with responsibility for Iraq) John Abizaid, Fed boss Alan Greenspan, President George W. Bush, Senator John McCain, Sarah Palin, Bush speechwriter David Frum, key war architect John Bolton, and a high-level National Security Council officer all say that the Iraq war was about oil.
Documents from Britain show the same thing.
But apologists for the Iraq war said this can't be true, because American companies didn't really end up with that much Iraqi oil.
BBC and Guardian investigative reporter Greg Palast - a New York Times bestselling author - thinks he knows why. Palast is famous for obtaining original source documents from whistleblowers which tell the real story."
