Excellent Moyers clip John.

Although I definitely agree that our foreign policy towards Iraq (and the rest of the Middle East for that matter) is largely about oil, I wouldn't go as far as to say that "Big Oil" moguls should be viewed the same as "Big Tobacco" executives. Big Oil is only exploiting the doors our government representatives have left open for them. Obviously, Big Oil has been very impressionable on this administration but we should hold our elected officials (and ourselves for electing them) accountable for the destructive and expensive policies our nation has pursued in the Middle East. Moyers seems to insinuate that we should punish Big Oil Execs. for doing they're jobs.
