U.S. Corporations in Iraq & the Iraqi Oil Law

The U.S. oil industry may be able to proclaim "Mission Accomplished" if the draft oil law promoted by the Bush administration is adopted by the Iraqi Parliament. The law would privatize control over 2/3 of all Iraq's oil resources. Learn more here.

U.S. corporations like Halliburton and Bechtel received no-bid contracts worth billions of dollars for reconstruction and other activities in Iraq. This was the first step in the Bush administration's plan to privatize and sell of key sectors of Iraq's economy. USLAW has produced a report on 18 of these corporations which exposes their anti-union, environmentally irresponsible and socially immoral record. This report and news accounts are gathered in this area from various sections of the website.
