Very little oil in Iraq? Oh, come on!!!

I am really confused with the murmurs that the oil reserves in Iraq are in decline and that Saddam lied about how much was there. On one hand, I can Saddam lying about it back when we supported him during the Iran-Iraq war -- and playing into the greed of American oil interests. But, on the other, I could see the Bush Admin running a huge propaganda campaign to diffuse the "War for Oil" talk. Without WMDs, and the proof that it was a 'high crime' for the Bush Admin to use WMD to justify the war that comes out more and more, Mr. Rove absolutely has to come up with something ingenious to cover up the REAL reason for the invasion: OIL

I think there *is* oil there. By saying there isn't much oil there -- the US gets Putin and Chirac off her back about the canceled oil contracts; and it makes the talk of "war for oil" just a tad bit less believable; it tips the table back to "Saddam was an evil guy; we had to liberate the iraqis".

Of particular interest is post #60 by Oaf of Office

This just blows my mind. Will there be a day when I am completely unable to see through the BS -- and just have to start believing everything I here from the WH in order to maintain my sanity?
