Bleeding Iraq Dry...From Within

A Dallas television station reports that the absence of metering at critical points in Iraq's oil production facilities is resulting in $20 - $30 million per day in stolen oil. The stolen oil money is going to insurgents, and the Iraqi oil ministry doesn't want anything to do with getting working meters installed or revealing who's buying their oil.
