As we noted last night, ExxonMobil pulled workers out of Iraq yesterday. AFP reports:
Iraq on Sunday slammed as “political” a decision by US energy giant ExxonMobil to evacuate staff from a southern oil field after Washington ordered personnel to quit its Baghdad embassy.
“The temporary withdrawal of employees has nothing to do with security in southern Iraqi oil fields or any threats,” Oil Minister Thamer Al-Ghadban said.
“The reasons are political and probably linked to tensions in the region,” he added in a statement released by the oil ministry.
Ghadban called the move to pull out staff from the West Qorna oil field west of the southern port city of Basra “unacceptable and unjustified.”
Guess that hurts the myth of 'improved Iraq' and of those "business opportunities" Hillary Clinton was promoting in 2011.
Hillary is not running for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in this race. Senator Bernie Sanders and US House Rep Tulsi Gabbard are running for the nomination.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says Trump is leading us down a dangerous path towards war with Iran: "They are setting the stage for a war with Iran that would prove to be far more costly, far more devastating and dangerous than anything that we saw in the Iraq War" https://abcn.ws/2LVbVQP
