Texas Oilman’s Greed Reduces Humanitarian Aid
Texas oilman Oscar Wyatt pleaded guilty to participating in a scheme that paid millions of dollars in kickbacks to the Iraqi government between 2000 and 2003 to secure contracts linked to the United Nations oil-for-food program. This is money that should have been paid into a UN run escrow account set up to purchase humanitarian aid for the Iraqi people after the first gulf war.
In other words, in order for his company to be able to buy and sell a good share of the limited oil Iraq was allowed to sell under the food-for-oil program, Wyatt slipped Saddam a few million in bribes that should have bought medicine and food for the people.
I am not a bit surprised that this guy is from Texas and I won’t be a bit surprised to find out that Bush Sr. knew all about it and even participated.
This war is not just about oil. It’s about Texas Oil. And our young people are dying every day so a few rich people can have it. Then they are going to sell it to you at outrageous prices to make indecent profits. And you’re gonna pay whatever price they want, in money or in blood. As long as it doesn’t interfere with the breaking news about Brittany Spears. It’s the American way.
