Emperor’s new clothes

 

It is interesting to note Alan Greenspan, former US Federal Reserve Chairman, is creating a controversy when he speaks openly about oil as being the prime reason for the decision of the Bush adminstration going to war. See also my note (entry August 22nd) about this connection as one of the blind spots of Zbigniew Brzezinski, who really should know better.

Greenspan is cited by MSNBC as writing in his latest book“The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World” : “I’m saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: The Iraq war is largely about oil.” He is old enough not have to think about his career anymore, so he can be the child telling the truth about the emperor.
