Speaker Pelosi also confirmed what Bob Cesca wrote in
Tuesday's Huffington Post: That one of the conditions
being placed on the Iraqi government by the White
House is that American oil companies be given first
shot at Iraqi oil and be allowed to keep 75 percent of
the profits.

"In the president's proposal, one of the standards
that he's setting for them to meet is that 75 percent
of the oil production goes to U.S. companies," she
said. "This is stunning -- 75 percent of the
production goes to the U.S. Is this what our kids are
over there for?"
