    Chevron, the second-largest American oil company, is preparing to acknowledge that it should have known kickbacks were being paid to Saddam Hussein on oil it bought from Iraq as part of a defunct United Nations program, according to investigators.

    The admission is part of a settlement being negotiated with United States prosecutors and includes fines totaling $25 million to $30 million, according to the investigators, who declined to be identified because the settlement was not yet public.

    It's an oil war, stupid car driver.

      You misunderstood my post. I'm not saying Big Oil are good guys, just that Iraqi oil money is just something else for Bushco to run a scam with.
