Dowd On Greenspan: The War Over Oil

What a pleasure to be able to read Maureen Dowd once again, Here she is taking apart the old Republican windbag Alan Greenspan in the Times:

Even though he rubber-stamped W.’s tax cuts, Alan Greenspan is now
upbraiding the president and vice president for profligate spending and putting
politics ahead of sound economics.
He also says in his new memoir that “the
Iraq war is largely about oil,” telling Bob Woodward that he had privately told
W. and Cheney that ousting Saddam was “essential” to keeping world oil supplies
safe. Irrational exuberance, indeed.

Yes, and we've destroyed a country and lost over 5,000 young Americans thanks, in part, to Greenspan's "advice" to war criminals Bush and Cheney.
