CNN Reporting That State Department Knew, Condoned Iraqi Oil Smuggling

This happened in both the Clinton and Bush administrations. Apparently, they felt it helped Turkey and Jordan which, in turn, helped them contain Saddam.

A few thoughts: This would help explain why the Bush administration has not been harder on the U.N. I don't think these actions happned under aegis of the U.N. Most money diverted was under thos auspices as far as I know. Lastly, if Bush knew sanctions were working, he probably knew war was the only feasible option. What's he going to say though? "A lot of you are on the take and that's why you are against the war."
