Washing Journal C-Span on Afghanistan...Pipeline mentioned, but quickly dropped.
Two reporters, one Scott Wilson from WaPo and another, Trudy Rubin from Philadelphia Inquirer were discussing Obama's surge in Afghanistan.

Someone called in and mentioned something for which no one seemed prepared. The caller mentioned the plans for the oil pipeline to be built across Afghanistan.

Trudy (I don't know her politics)gave a small, but decidedly cynical "cat out of the bag" smile and Wilson, eyes cast down, quickly mumbled something like "Yes, there are 'energy interests' but the discussion was mainly about Security"...The subject then dropped like a stone.

I tried like mad to call back but couldn't get through, so I wrote an email noting the moment, and writing of the apparent "gag" from both Obama and the M$M regarding those "energy interests" asking them if they just MIGHT be afraid if this unpopular war would become even LESS so if people knew the "pipeline" connection.

I know this has been discussed here before, but I'm afraid I've missed it.

The prospect of more "blood for oil" really sickens me...and makes me even more suspicious of Obama.

If you'd like to weigh in, I'd like to hear more about it.
