  •  DOJ action against Hunt? (0+ / 0-)

    Somewhere in the MSM the past few days I read a newspaper article that the DOJ had moved to freeze the assets of Hunt Oil because they had signed this deal. I may have misread the story, but my recollection was that Hunt was in trouble regarding this agreement.  Because I was traveling, I do not recall which paper I was reading and I am technically inept so even if I knew I would not be able to provide a link.  However, one of the many technically capable readers of this site should be able to find it in the WSJ, USA Today or The Chronicle.

    •  Yes I read the same story (0+ / 0-)

      which I commented on downstream and subsequently seems to have disappeared from the net. Bush was pained and troubled that he had to seize the assets of Hunt Oil, as Hunt was such a trusted friend "crony/contributor" bit that it had to be done as Hunt was undermining the US effort of victory in Iraq, the unstated majority of which is a US deal with the Iraqi government over oil, and Hunt had jeopardized said effort by dealing directly with the Kurds.
