Deputy Secretary of the Interior Stephen “Griles was a lead actor in the Cheney Energy Task Force [that first convened on January 30, 2001], serving as the Interior Department’s chief representative. As such, he played a lead role in mapping out the U.S. oil industry’s interests in Iraq’s oil fields and developing some of the most destructive national energy bills in the nation’s history, giving more than $14 billion worth of subsidies, tax breaks, and other benefits to the oil industry.”
