How’d My Oil Get Under Your Sand?

Spencer Ackerman puts some perspective onto oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens’ stupid declarations to Congress on Wednesday.

T. Boone Pickens, today:

They’re opening them (oil fields) up to other companies all over the world … We’re entitled to it,” Pickens said of Iraq’s oil. “Heck, we even lost 5,000 of our people, 65,000 injured and a trillion, five hundred billion dollars.

Osama bin Laden, 2007:

AL-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has accused the US of plotting to take control of Iraqi oil supplies and he urged Iraqis to reject efforts to rebuild a US-backed national unity government.

Stupid as a bag of rocks. If only Pickens was also as silent as one.
