The True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report

Chevron's 2008 annual report is a glossy celebration of the company's most profitable year in its history and one in which company CEO David O’Reilly became the 15th highest paid U.S. CEO, with nearly $50 million in total 2008 compensation.

Spoils of War: Oil, The U.S.-Middle East Free Trade Area, and The Bush Agenda

Now with his war under attack, even President George W. Bush has gone public, telling reporters last August, “[a] failed Iraq … would give the terrorists and extremists an additional tool besides safe haven, and that is revenues from oil sales.” Of course, Bush not only wants to keep oil out of his enemies’ hands, he also wants to put it into the hands of his friends.
