This is from John Brown's Public Diplomacy Press & Blog Review. There's no mistaking what it's about.
"I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil."
--Former Federal Reserve Chair Alan Greenspan; cited in Katrina Vanden Heuvel, “Greenspan, Iraq & Oil” (Nation, September 15)
I've always admired Alan. I believe him and hope he's truly saddened by the troubles his wanton ignorance has allowed to metasticise.
I could go on, but work she be a swampin' me, eh.
