Das wird euch jetzt sicher genau so überraschen wie mich: Den Briten sind ein paar Memos über die Vorbereitung zum Irakkrieg geleakt. Und guckt mal, was da drin steht:

Plans to exploit Iraq's oil reserves were discussed by government ministers and the world's largest oil companies the year before Britain took a leading role in invading Iraq, government documents show.

Für den Kontext muss man erwähnen, dass in England gerade eine Anhörung läuft, um herauszufinden, ob beim Irakkrieg alles mit rechten Dingen zuging. Dort sind diese Memos weder von der Regierung noch von der Ölindustrie eingebracht worden.

In March 2003, just before Britain went to war, Shell denounced reports that it had held talks with Downing Street about Iraqi oil as "highly inaccurate". BP denied that it had any "strategic interest" in Iraq, while Tony Blair described "the oil conspiracy theory" as "the most absurd".

Absurd!!1!
