Perhaps my favorite passage from the Bechtel-Iraqi oil documents is a memo to Bechtel from their law firm: "I am pleased to advise you that we have retained the Honorable James Schlesinger (former Secretary of Energy, Secretary of Defense, and Director of the CIA) to head up our team. I am confident that having a man of his prestige on our side will redound to the benefit of Bechtel as well."

Indeed. The top man for oil, weapons, and secrets in the US would be quit useful in secretly securing oil in exchange for weapons.
