You may have already read this at Tom Tomorrow's blog or Eschaton, but if you haven't, you need to know:
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption and abuse, said today that documents turned over by the Commerce Department, under court order as a result of Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit concerning the activities of the Cheney Energy Task Force, contain a map of Iraqi oilfields, pipelines, refineries and terminals, as well as 2 charts detailing Iraqi oil and gas projects, and “Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts.” The documents, which are dated March 2001, are available on the Internet at: www.JudicialWatch.org.
Yes, you read that righrt: March 2001.
Here's the press release. Here are the documents.
As Tom T. says, "Judicial Watch was one of the conservative groups that went after Clinton, on Richard Mellon Scaife's dime, back in the day. At the time, founder Larry Klayman stated, 'I take it to heart when I see the government not telling the truth, not doing the right thing and covering up.'
And what do you know? It looks like he meant it." Well, maybe. But whatever the reason for the suit, I'm amazed at what it has apparently turned up.
