In honor of election season. Here's a quote from a former CIA man:
To my dismay, I would find that the tentacles of big oil stretch from the Caspian Sea to the White House. And to my anger, indeed to my rage, I would see how money, not lives or national security, skews so much of what takes place in the very places most charged with protecting us all.
from See No Evil by Robert Baer
You think it's the Bush White House, huh? Nope. Try the Clintons.
