We don’t always expect the whole truth and nothing but when it comes to big oil. But it’s a whole different ballgame when you fib to Congress:
A White House document shows that executives from big oil companies met with Vice President Cheney’s energy task force in 2001 — something long suspected by environmentalists but denied as recently as last week by industry officials testifying before Congress.
So what happens now? This ain’t a few baseball players jerking more homeruns than usual. These guys gave at the office, big time. Who among the politicians will bite the hand that greases their palms?
