“Freedom of Information Act requests revealed [on March 5, 2002] that, as part of its deliberations, the [Cheney Energy] task force reviewed a series of lists and maps outlining Iraq’s entire oil productive capacity. These maps include detailed descriptions of all of Iraq’s oil fields, oil pipelines, refineries, and tanker terminals. Two lists entitled ‘Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts’ listed more than sixty companies from some thirty countries with contracts in various stages of discussion with Saddam Hussein for oil and gas projects across Iraq.”
