Secret U.S. Plans For Iraq's Oil

Why was Paul Wolfowitz pushed out of the Pentagon onto the World Bank — The answer lies in a 323-page document, secret until now, indicating that the allies of Big Oil in the Bush Administration have defeated neo-conservatives and their chief Wolfowitz. BBC Television Newsnight tells the true story of the fall of the neo-cons. An investigation conducted by BBC with Harper's magazine will also reveal that the US State Department made detailed plans for war in Iraq — and for Iraq's oil — within weeks of Bush's first inauguration in 2001.
