Shhh... Don't Tell Anyone 

One of the biggest comments among the anti-war folks is about how the Iraq War is "All About the Oil", and how the US just wants to claim more oil reserves for itself. It comes to know surprise then (at least to me), that the media is not realy covering this little tidbit yet, or at least are burrying it:

Iraq controls oil industry (emphasis added):

IRAQI officials today said the interim government had assumed full control of the country's oil industry ahead of the June 30 handover of sovereignty from the US-led occupation administration.

"Today the most important natural resource has been returned to Iraqis to serve all Iraqis," Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said.
...
"We are totally now in control, there are no more advisers," Mr Ghadbhan said.

"We are running the show, the oil policies will be implemented 100 percent by Iraqis."

What were you saying again?
