Looks like the REAL reason for the run-up in crude oil to $147 now comes out . . . As I had once thought, Iran was about to go "off-line" at one point last year due to an Israeli mission to fly over Iraqi airspace and use U.S. made bunker busting bombs to take out Iran's main nuclear reactor. However, Bush chose not to sanction the Israeli's plea and once again "relied" on horrible NIE intelligence. http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/38875 Guess Mr. Bush wasn't all that "tough" when it came to wanting to take out regimes that controlled WMD capability.
