WOW! This is a must read for anyone who uses gas or oil from the Middle East. Baer is a hero - not just for his years serving the country in the CIA but for his willingness to write about it. We (the US) are so inextricably intwined with the Energy debacle yet we choose to walk around it. We are so much like spoiled kids - we want what we want but just don't force us to understand the realities of what it takes to get what we want. We don't have a democracy... we simply buy what we want, from a new TV for the bedroom to a Senator to a corporation. Money is the only thing that talks.
