Jim Baker eyes the oil in Iraq
With the disaster unfolding in Iraq, you’d think the U.S. government might take its eyes off the oil for a moment. There are some 27 million Iraqis who might demand a higher place in our priorities.
Apparently not. It turns out Jim Baker’s ISG report is chock full of recommendations about what to do with Iraq’s oil. Antonia Juhasz in the L.A. Times gives us the details. Let’s just say, if you thought this war had absolutely nothing to do with oil, you need to reexamine your conclusions.
