“In [February 16] 2004 New Yorker magazine reporter Jane Mayer revealed a top-secret memo written [on February 3, 2001] by a high level National Security Council (NSC) official directing the NSC staff to cooperate fully with the Energy Task Force as it considered the ‘melding’ of two seemingly unrelated areas of policy: ‘the review of operational policies towards rogue states,’ such as Iraq, and ‘actions regarding the capture of new and existing oil and gas fields.’ ”
