[hands skullduggery filter to Brian]

Here's my comment from Ezra's place. This makes more sense to me.

Well, secretcy as an exhibition of power makes sense (if one has the Cheney world-view).

But I sense that their is far more to what the ETF actually did than has been revealed.

I envision something like the French and British dividing up the Ottoman Empire after WWI. All those nice straight lines (in the sand) to create new client-states.

One Iraqi oilfield to BP, one to Exxon, one to Shell, etc.

Cheney's sendoff line to Oil Guys after the spoils were divided:

"We'll even provide the security".


I wonder if Suncor was there. I wonder if Cheney owns SU or whether Haliburton has a relationship with them. May be public record for all I know, but the "suspicious number of Canadian interest groups" would be worth exploring. I can imagine Cheney seeking asylum there one day if he's not worried about having to wait 18 months to get a pacemaker.

I don't generally feel anything until noon; then it's time for my nap.


Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it's just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it.

Buy Viagra

Life engenders life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.

Buy phentermine

The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out the conservative adopts them.
