MSNBC : Slate: Oil and Israel
"The idea that oil is a factor in official thinking about Iraq shouldn’t even be controversial. Protecting oil supplies from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait was an explicit — though disingenuously underemphasized — reason for Bush War I
"The lack of public discussion about the role of Israel in the thinking of “President Bush” is easier to understand, but weird nevertheless."
We are thinking alike - I mentioned both Israel and Oil in my lastest Iraq debate email to Peter this morning.
