Greenspan: Oil Was an Important Factor in Iraq War

From Steve Clemons, here
"... But I was merely raising the issue that why there's such a fundamental issue around the Iraq war is that there is oil under the sands. And I'm just saying, without getting into the other issues you raised, which I frankly don't exactly disagree with you on. If oil did not happen to exist in Iraq, the issues of Iraq and the Iraq war would have come about wholly differently. And I don't think there would be a war, frankly. I think that Saddam would not be a crucial player in the world..."
