Washington Post: Leaked White House document proves direct Oil Industry ties to 2001 Cheney Energy Task Force. It is lovely to see Fox News forced to cover the story here.

Possibly the worst or most sinister part of the story is how Republican Senators, themselves dripping with Oil campaign cash, howled and panted when it was suggested at last week's Senate hearing on 'record oil profits' that Oil Industry executives there to testify be exempted from testifying under oath.

Of course, if this Post document is confirmed, then almost all of the Oil Executives testifying last week who denied any involvement in Cheney's Task Force would have perjured themselves. But of course now it appears that if they lied there is no law broken. This was covered in today's DemocracyNow! program.
