Chevron, C. Rice, and Oil For Food Program

Today's apparent capitulation by Congressional Democrats on Iraq got me to thinking about Condoleezza Rice. Not quite Teflon, she nevertheless has escaped criticism far better than the usual suspects- Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Tenet, Richard Perle, and others. And here comes an article entitled "Chevron Seen Settling Case on Iraq Oil" from the New York Times of May 8, 2007. Chevron was to acknowledge to federal prosecutors that it knew kickbacks were being paid to Saddam Hussein as part of the now-defunct "Oil for Food Program," which some Republicans used to love to cite while cheerleading for the war. The Chevron board member who was head of its public policy committee at the time- why, none other than that Condoleeza Rice!
