"It's a critical law that is being rushed through Iraq's government at a time when the government is highly susceptible to external pressure," [Juhasz] said. "Most people in Iraq assume the U.S. invasion was about oil. When the people of Iraq learn that the majority of their oil fields are being turned over to foreign private production ... it worries me. I wouldn't want to be a soldier on the ground when the law passes."

Antonia discusses the following with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!: "A new battle is brewing in Congress over how the US government monitors the billions of dollars it spends on the reconstruction of Iraq. The Bush administration and leading Congressional Republicans are trying to close the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction. The special agency has uncovered several cases of waste and abuse, and has helped indict several American officials on charges of corruption."
