Blood for Oil?

BLOOD FOR OIL?….I’m listening to the 60 Minutes segment about Woodward’s book right now and just heard something I haven’t seen in any of the press reports so far: the Saudis promised Bush they would lower oil prices before the election so that the U.S. economy would be in good shape in November.

WTF?

And then there’s the obvious question: it’s April already and they haven’t done it yet. What are they waiting for? Or were they just yanking Bush’s chain all along?
