Exxon: America will always rely on foreign oil
Feb 7, 2006 — HOUSTON (Reuters) - The United States will always rely on foreign imports of oil to feed its energy needs and should stop trying to become energy independent, a top Exxon Mobil Corp. executive said on Tuesday.
"Realistically, it is simply not feasible in any time period relevant to our discussion today," Exxon Mobil Senior Vice President Stuart McGill said, referring to what he called the "misperception" that the United States can achieve energy independence.

My oh my. Exxon Mobil, verified evil liars, instructs the United States on no uncertain terms to bury their head in the sand.

Clearly story line Exxon Mobil favors is the one where they Pimp American Freedom to the Middle East, rather than, as the President suggested, the Oil Company as Drug Pusher.

Whatever. Ethics is tricky. Dance with the tar baby that brung you.

Peak Oil is the driver, yet it is still the unspoken elephant in the room for the biggest players, be they presidents or oil companies.
