Oil Tycoon: US "Entitled" to Iraqi Oil democracy now 10-22-09
In other congressional testimony, the oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens (yes, the hi-tech windmill phony) told lawmakers Wednesday the US is "entitled" to Iraqi oil because of the human and financial toll of occupying Iraq. Addressing the Congressional Natural Gas Caucus, Pickens criticized Iraqi plans to open up oil fields to international bidding. Pickens said, "They're opening them up to other companies all over the world…We're entitled to it…We even lost 5,000 of our people, 65,000 injured and a trillion, five hundred billion dollars."
