    Dallas Blog wrote about this Ray Hunt oil "deal" this past Monday. Here's the Monday blog about it that references the Wall Street Journal story.

    And here's the follow-up that says the state department knows nothing about it. And this:

    Ray Hunt is not the only Dallasite seeking to enter into energy agreements with the Kurds. As noted by the Dallas Morning News this morning, H. Ross Perot, Jr. also is engaged in negotiations with the Kurds on major energy deals in northern Iraq.

    Ray Hunt has donated large parcels of land around SMU for the Bush Presidential Library. Now it's clear why he hasn't backed down even though there is so much opposition (to the library).
