This is viewer supported news

If there is one place in Iraq where people know what the Bush administration has to gain by seizing the country’s oil wealth, it’s the Iraqi oil ministry.

In an exclusive interview with Democracy Now!, the General Director of Iraq’s oil program accused Washington of seeking to send the country into a state of Armageddon to capture the country’s oil fields.

The comments come in the latest installment of Democracy Now!’s Iraq Journal produced by correspondent Jeremy Scahill and filmmaker Jacquie Soohen in Baghdad.
