[casi-analysis] US will continue to control iraqi oil revenues

[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ]

I found confirmation that US will continue to control oil revenues when
sovereignty is transferred June 30. This fact seems to be missing from most
accounts of the handover.

Cheers Ken Hanly

Iraq's oil revenue is under U.S. control and will remain so until a
"representative" government is in place as stipulated by a U.N. resolution
last year. Most of the oil revenue in the 2004 budget was spent on paying
government salaries so far.
