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