NEWSWEEK: Democrat Donor received $22 million in "Oil for Food" Scandal
The Kerry Fairy ^ | 10/10/04 | Becki Snow

Posted on 10/10/2004 2:53:15 AM PDT by dandelion

If the name of a "Big Money" Political Party Donor with ties to Enron were discovered on the Saddam's Coalition of the Bribed, what do you think would happen to the Candidate of that party?

What if that Candidate of that Party was John Kerry?

Newsweek drops a bombshell on the Kerry Campaign: Texas Oil Baron and Big-Time Democrat Donor Oscar Wyatt has received perhaps as much a $22 million dollars in profits through oil allocations bought illicity from Saddam Hussein.

From MSNBC: United Nations: Oil-for-Food Fiasco?"

Law-enforcement sources say Americans who participated in alleged oil-for-food scams also may face further investigation. The CIA deleted from Duelfer's report names of Saddam's U.S. oil-for-food favorites. But an uncensored copy of the Duelfer report obtained by NEWSWEEK indicates Houston oil mogul Oscar Wyatt got oil allocations from Saddam which could have earned him and Coastal Corp.?a company he founded and ran until 2000?profits of more than $22 million. Wyatt and wife Lynn are major donors to political causes: since 1989 they have given nearly $700,000 in contributions, of which more than $500,000 went to Democrats. Wyatt told NEWSWEEK that his company did buy oil from Saddam but that he never did so personally, and that his company's dealings all complied with U.N. rules. ?Mark Hosenball and Steve Tuttle

Who is Oscar Wyatt? More than just a oil man, he's an outspoken critic of both Gulf Wars, and a big time Democratic Party Donor...

As per Houston's Clear Thinkers:

The 10-K also disclosed that one of El Paso's units has been subpoenaed by a grand jury from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to produce records regarding the United Nations' Oil for Food Program governing sales of Iraqi oil. The unit, El Paso CGP Company, was formerly Coastal Corp., which the company acquired in January 2001. The former chairman of Coastal -- Oscar Wyatt -- was an unabashed critic of Operation Desert Storm in the first Persian Gulf War and has been a vocal public critic of El Paso's management over the past several years.

Wyatt appears to have used his ill-gotten gains wisely - buying the leftovers of Enron.

According to New Age Business:

Enron said that the company and the Official Unsecured Creditor's Committee decided the CCE offer was best. Enron previously had said NuCoastal LLC, a company run by Texas billionaire and Coastal Corp. founder Oscar Wyatt Jr. had offered $2.2 billion in May.

So how does this affect Kerry? Well, perhaps we should couch it in terms even the Old Press can understand:

Big Oil, bribed by Saddam Hussein, helped pay for John Kerry's Campaign. Money used to buy Hussein's army's guns helped pay for John Kerry's campaign. Guns used to kill American Soldiers helped pay for John Kerry's campaign...

This may explain why John Kerry thinks the war in Iraq was a mistake. I believe the mistake may be his.

Those F'n Assholes said this would complicate Bush foreign policy? We are to blame for some Democrat?? The MSM are such traitors. Bush has to win. the alternative is socialism.

The question isn't what oil companies bought the oil, the question is what was the UN doing with an $84 Billion dollars slush fund.

Sound like the MSM is pointing the finger at Bush with a 3 Card Monty Attention Deficit Disorder Big Oil story.

Kerry donor on take with Saddam. Kerry donor colluding with CBS. Kerry's foreign policy adviser Sandy Burglar steals NSA files. Kerry supporters use terrorist activities to influence election, shooting at Bush-Cheney supporters.

I'm still waiting for Rathergate and all to be investigated by the Feds. Joe Lockhart was pressing the flesh in the St. Louis Spin Room untouched by his corrupt behavior having consequence. Think this is high on the list?

So it WAS all about the oil, except that the benefits redounded not to Bush, Cheney and THEIR friends, but to friends of John Kerry? That's just TOO sweet!

In the mid 80's I had to sit at the head table at an International Association of Drilling Contractors meeting with Wyatt while he gave a speech beating up on President Reagan. He has always been an ass.

Last week John Kerry said it would be interesting to find out about any Americans involved in the Oil for Food scandal. He said it with a tone of insinuation, which, to my ears, sounded like he was hinting it would be someone connected with the White House.

From: The Handbook of Texas, Online:

Before the Gulf War in 1991, Wyatt attempted to trade Coastal's refining and marketing assets for regular supplies of crude oil from Iraq. With Coastal director and former Texas governor John B. Connally,qv Wyatt met with Saddam Hussein and flew twenty-one hostages out of Baghdad. Wyatt was later critical of Operation Desert Storm and was investigated for possible violation of the United States trade embargo.

Sounds like this bastard had been in bed with Saddam and possibly al Qaeda for over a decade.

I bet the MSM cabal tries to paint Wyatt as a R. He may have supported the first President Bush, but his more recent activities indicate what a RAT he truly is. Thanks for posting this, BillF. I would have thrown something at the TV.

Haven't surfed the entire thread on this subject. Did anybody post Wyatt's donation list?

Kerry plans, if elected, to tax all eBay transactions.

I have a liberal co-worker who also has an eBay business. Would love to share this news with him.

Can you provide a link to back this up?

Thanks!

Suddenly the fact that Kerry hasn't been beaten W. about the head with an Enron stick makes perfect sense, in hypocritical ironic fashion.

Don’t forget that the Enron thievery started and prospered during the Clinton administration and was uncovered and prosecuted during the Bush administration.

Add to that, when Enron was in trouble they went to the Democrats for help and Clinton’s Treasury man Robert Rubin made phone calls to the Bush Treasury dept looking for governmental help for Enron. Bush’s Treasury dept turned Rubin and Enron down flat.

The Democrats are far dirtier on Enron then anyone else.
