Letter: Nobody fooled by McConnell’s words

Commenting upon Mitch McConnell’s presentation at the Aspen Institute on Aug 12: As the descendant of a pioneer mining family from this area, who has been fortunate enough to do a lot of foreign travel, I feel my opinion is equally as valid as any newcomer’s!

If McConnell can name one foreign country that does not believe the reason for the U.S. invasion of Iraq was about oil, and not freedom and democracy, then he will be standing on terra firma when expressing his foreign-policy views. Considering the magnitude of the resulting disaster in the Middle East, we are extremely lucky a much larger war was not ignited!

Until McConnell and his colleagues come clean with the American people about oil being the main reason for the Iraqi invasion, he as well as the U.S. will continue to have bad karma.
