As background to the players, you need to know that huge, the world's largest, oil reserves were discovered in Russia. Every major oil player, arms merchant and crook that could muscle their percentage of this find... did. That includes some big names in the Democratic Party. Ted Kennedy, Sandy Berger, Teddy's wife Victoria, Don Fowler (National Democratic Committee Chairman), Bill Clinton and Al Gore.
There are several myths floating around in the backs of people's minds concerning both the parties and the candidates for this election. Many people suspect big oil interests as being the sole motivation for President George Bush's actions concerning Iraq, and that the Democratic Party and it's candidate of hope are somehow distanced from petroleum.
In addition, much criticism has been aimed at this Administration concerning our Intelligence Agency's failure to forsee and protect us from 9-11. Many of you may be in for a major shock as you read the rest of this article. It goes some way in demonstrating how big oil interests dominated White House policy making during the mid to late 90's, during the Clinton administration.

Enter Roger Tamraz one of the slickest sharpest opportunists on this earth. Indicted for bank fraud by the Lebanese Government and turned into Interpol, he was considered an international fugitive. Yet, Roger Tamraz was meeting with Kennedy, Gore and Clinton, wheeling and dealing in NY and making millions, running go between the US and other interests, including Moscow.
The President of Azerbaijan Aliyev signed his deal on September 20,1994. It gave BP, Amoco, Pennzoil, Unocal, Ramco, Statoil,and Delta petroleum drilling rights to 3 offshore oil fields in the Caspian Sea .The reserves estimated at 4.4 BILLION barrels folks, rivalling Saudi's fields easily. The consortium was named the Azerbaijan Operating Consortium, or AIOC. In his telling book, See No Evil, ex-CIA officer Robert Baer chronicles a conversation he had with Aliyev. He tells of Aliyev receiving a phone call in March 1995 from the US State Department's Undersecretary For Economic Affairs Joan Spiro. She told him she was calling on behalf of Secretary Of State Warren Christopher. During the call, in no uncertain terms, Joan told him if he wanted to maintain good relations with the US, Exxon had to have 5% of the deal-period. When Aliyev expressed concern about Iran, Joan brushed him off. He received similar calls from Deputy Energy Secretary Bob White, again on the same terms.
Soon after, the press broke the news that Tony Lake, former National Security Advisor and his wife, held $304,000 in stocks, during his tenure. Lake held Exxon stock, his wife Mobil.
While this ugly manoeuvering was painting Foggy Bottom in petroleum, Usama Bin Laden was heading for Afghanistan, and we begin to understand of course why.
Meanwhile, at CIA, Richard Ames, whose nasty betrayal's rivalled Kim Philby, caused the agency to be examined by outside investigators. Already demoralized and sinking in petro-dem political games, many of the best people simply left. No one in the Clinton White House wanted to hear about Iran, Iraq or Usama Bin Laden. Oil was the buzzword of the day, and the rest be damned.
Agents were afraid to contact anyone foreign because of the Nazi-like investigations. Tell me, how does one gather intelligence when one can't do the job? Many good people were fired or so demoralised, they just put in their time and left. The political games inside were bloody and fierce. We had NO good intelligence from anywhere in the Middle East that was available, or if it were, it was ignored. This is how 9-11 happened people. At the hands of the Democratic party, it's President and political cronies.
This is an ugly reality, but nonetheless truthful. The Clinton administration and the petrodems-the same people desperately trying to get another wealthy oil hungry petro-crony elected, hobbled our intelligence community to such a point, we were blindsided by that vicious attack on the WTC. The petro-dems were in bed with China, Russia, Iran and any other country willing to help reap greater profits for their already bloated coffers.
Now this "candidate for hope" John Kerry, and his Tereza are simply playing us for all their worth, so they can reinstitute the same policies we had during the Bill/Hilary days. Before you vote I'm pleading with people to stop listening to slick hype and really LOOK into this yourselves. And if the worst should happen, you have no one but yourselves to blame.

This is an insightful and well-written article. Money seems to be the driving force behind all politics (in our case, both Democratic AND Republican). The Dems "warchest" far exceeded that of the GOP, in sheer dollar volume. And it isn't hard to uncover how many of those dollars were contributed by -- good heavens! -- big business! But... a lot of American voters once again PROVED the old saw: "You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time."

|One thing I've experienced is that those who support liberal causes usually don't want to be confused with the facts. Thanks for a great write.|

All I'm trying to do is get people to make an informed choice, one based on knowledge, rather than the sickening media BS out there. At least I know your decision is based on truly thinking about the candidates.

|Well, I don't know what else you've proven, but it's sure enough true that you can find crap on just about any politician these days. I did a bit of research myself to uncover just how much went wrong oil-wise in the Clinton administration - and I'm STILL convinced we're better off with Kerry than Bush. The main problem now is our continuing demand for oil in this country (I drive a hybrid) and having a president who got into office by appointment in 2000 and has shown no desire (why should he) to get the voting ballot woes fixed. If Bush gets in again - we can never believe it was legal. Never. This is the main reason I can see for voting for Kerry. I'll take Clinton's eight years over Bush's four anytime.|

|You know sweets, the American public were the only people in the world who did not know that invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan were scheduled even before Bush was elected. There are few options for getting oil out of the Caspian region without moving it through "enemy" territory other than by removing enemies. Neutralising Russia or China is not an option so Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran have to be made into client states.
Of course the oil men have filed to allow for the real enemy in their calculations. See my latest article.
Be in touch soon Candy, you would not believe what my last two weeks have been like.

|Well written and researched informative article, Candida. I know there are many that may not want to believe, being a Democrat myself this is very hard to swallow. However, it is imperitive to be fully informed of all facts that are a matter of public record than to sink one's head in the sand and proclaim ignorance after the fact. ~Z~|
