On US oil companies and their buisness with middle east states financing terrorism.
Subj: American Oil Companies and financing Terrorism Date: 4/17/2002 2:35:52 PM US Mountain Standard Time From: TOMEXE To: oreilly@foxnews.com CC: TOMEXE You took a brave stand in your April 11 WND piece, to openly discuss what many have been afraid to talk about, namely the possibility of a world war between the Islamic countries and the West. Now how bout taking another brave stand. Inform the American public what big business and I feel even this administration don't want them to know. That American oil companies pump millions of dollars into the coffers of Arab states by buying oil from them. Arab states that turn around and send paychecks to the families of suicide bombers. Have your research people go over these US Department of Energy links and fact check them: http://www.eia.doe.gov/pub/oil_gas/petroleum/data_publications/company_level_imports/current/data/summary.html http://www.eia.doe.gov/oil_gas/petroleum/data_publications/company_level_imports/cli.html also you might want to fact check this protest website: http://www.e-bski.org/special%20pages/oilcompanies.htm. They were the first to bring this up, but have come under attack here: http://www.snopes2.com/inboxer/outrage/nogas.htm You may also want to talk with this columnist from National Review: http://www.nationalreview.com/robbins/robbins041002.asp Then announce on your show which companies in the US petroleum market buy the least amounts of oil from states that sponsor terrorism, Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia for the most part, so that the American public understands that they in fact DO have a choice in where they get their gasoline from and that the Arab states are not in total control of US oil. They are in fact MINOR players who can be replaced, without much dislocation in the US economy. Someone has to break the wall, the American public is being deliberately misled here, there is some sort of arrangement being made. Otherwise I cannot figure out why the oil companies who do import the least Mid East oil have not been advertising this fact since last September? They would make a killing? What has short circuited the normal competitive process here? Thank you Thomas E. Peters Circle City, AZ tomexe@aol.com

Feel free to borrow any or all of this if you wish. This man does pay attention to his mail. He has in the past done spots in response to letters from us Arizonans about the absence of border security down here... His record shows that he will do a segment on something if he gets enough E-mail, unlike other TV shows.

Thomas, I have one question not related to your post, but why do you people in Arizona keep electing John Mc Cain? He is as liberal as Tom Daschel. He is as anit-gun as one can get. I am just curious.

I don't give a rat fuck about whether the letter gets aired, as long as he looks into the subject. I just think that someone with a good research staff needs to look into this. There is a lot of data on the USDOE websites- but its raw data. You have to rely on the summaries that they post. And whoever researches it needs a mass media outlet so people can actually do something with what they find.

My apologies. Iran is not an Arab state.
