Australia Akui Ada Faktor Minyak di Balik Invasi Irak
Sudah 3.580 Tentara AS Tewas sejak 2003canberra, kamis – Untuk pertama kali, Pemerintah Australia mengakui bahwa minyak menjadi faktor kunci di balik dukungan Australia atas invasi Amerika Serikat ke Irak. Semula, Australia selalu menyangkal adanya kepentingan untuk mengamankan suplai minyak sebagai alasan invasi tersebut. Dalam sebuah tinjauan strategi pertahanan Australia yang dirilis Kamis (5/7) disebutkan bahwa “mengamankan sumber daya” di Timur Tengah adalah prioritas utama. “Strategi pertahanan yang kami umumkan hari ini menjabarkan banyak prioritas pertahanan dan keamanan Australia, dan keamanan sumber daya adalah salah satunya,” kata Menteri Pertahanan Australia Brendan Nelson. “Timur Tengah sendiri, tidak hanya Irak, tetapi juga seluruh kawasan Timur Tengah, adalah penyedia energi penting untuk dunia. Australia dan seluruh dunia perlu memikirkan apa yang akan terjadi jika ada penarikan pasukan lebih awal dari Irak,” ujarnya.

Pernyataan tersebut membuktikan argumen para penentang keras Perang Irak bahwa invasi AS pada tahun 2003 lebih didorong kepentingan minyak daripada alasan menemukan senjata pemusnah massal milik Saddam Hussein.

CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT ON IRAQ OIL LOBBYING

Confidential Document on Iraq Oil Lobbying

Commentary by James Paul
Global Policy Forum
July 14, 2006

The governments of the Coalition that overthrew Saddam Hussein announced that they acted because of weapons of mass destruction, terrorist threats, and a desire to install democracy in Iraq. They insisted that their actions had nothing whatsoever to do with oil. A confidential document (klik aja) has now come to light that helps us gain perspective on these official arguments. The document reveals that, in private, the Coalition governments were extremely interested in oil and that intense negotiations were going on, even while the initial fighting was still under way, to parcel out Iraq’s major oil fields. The main decisions were being taken in Washington. Key players – in the UK, Australia, France and elsewhere – saw Washington as the ultimate arbiter of Iraq’s oil resources.

Chevron seen settling case on Iraq oil

By Claudio Gatti and Jad Mouawad

 

Tuesday, May 8, 2007
Chevron, the second-largest American oil company, is preparing to acknowledge that it should have known kickbacks were being paid to Saddam Hussein on oil it bought from Iraq as part of a defunct United Nations program, according to investigators.

The admission is part of a settlement being negotiated with United States prosecutors and includes fines totaling $25 million to $30 million, according to the investigators, who declined to be identified because the settlement was not yet public.

The penalty, which is still being negotiated, would be the largest so far in the United States in connection with investigations of companies involved in the oil-for-food scandal.

CHENEY ENERGY TASK FORCE DOCUMENTS FEATURE MAP OF IRAQI OILFIELDS

Cheney had Iraq in sights two years ago

Documents released under America’s Freedom of Information Act reveal that an energy task force led by vice-president Dick Cheney was examining Iraq’s oil assets two years before the latest war began.

The papers were obtained after a long battle with the White House by Judicial Watch, a conservative legal charity that opposes government secrecy and which is suing for the dealings of the task force to be made public.

The emergence of the documents could fuel claims that America’s war in Iraq had as much to do with oil as national security. It also indicates that the Bush administration is beginning to lose the battle to keep its internal workings secret.

The 16 pages, dated March 2001, show maps of Iraq oil fields, pipelines, refineries and terminals. A document titled Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts is also included, listing which countries were keen to do business with Saddam’s regime.

Judicial Watch requested the papers two years ago as part of its investigation into links between the Bush administration and senior energy executives including Enron’s former chairman Ken Lay.

Mr Cheney has fought the release of the documents at every stage. A court ordered two weeks ago that at least some of the task force’s working papers should be made public.

 

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said: “People will draw their own conclusions about the documents, but that is what an open society is about. Given the delay in their release, the Bush administration clearly did not want them to come out.”

A spokesman for Mr Cheney did not return calls yesterday. The US Commerce Department said in a statement: “It is the responsibility of the Commerce Department to serve as a commercial liaison for US companies doing business around the world, including those that develop and utilise energy resources. The Energy Task Force evaluated regions of the world that are vital to global energy supply.”

Judicial Watch isn’t claiming that the documents are proof of any particular intent but say they should be open to public scrutiny.

Mr Fitton said: “Opponents of the war will point to the documents as evidence that the Bush administration was after Iraqi oil. Supporters will say the energy task force would have been remiss if it did not take Iraq’s oil into account.”

Nevertheless, the documents represent a surprising development. Until now it had been assumed that the US government was stonewalling over the energy task force papers because they would show the extent to which major party benefactors, including Enron, effectively wrote national energy policy.

Judicial Watch and other watchdogs are now curious what else may be revealed. A court ordered the government to comply with the Freedom of Information Act and give up these documents more than a year ago. Judicial Watch said it could not explain why the papers were suddenly released. A government spokesman declined to elaborate.

Maps of oil fields and pipelines in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and a list of energy development projects in those two countries are also included.

Mr Cheney argues that his consultations with the energy industry should be private so that all parties can speak freely. A US court recently described this invoking of executive privilege “extraordinary” and “drastic”.
