Bolton Oblivious to Iraqi Sovereignty, Thinks Employed Iraqi's Are "Inefficient"

I recently ran across this great clip from On The Map with Avi Lewis. It's an interview between CBC Journalist Avi Lewis and the ninja master of obfuscation, John Bolton, famous UN hater and (curiously) former US ambassador to same. The subject is the new Plunder Iraqi Oil Legislation. Or new Iraqi Oil Law, however you want to put it.

Lewis opens with a "...word from [Bolton's] sponsor:" cue Donald Rumsfeld, 2005
...that you give credence to those who suggest that we're there for the oil or that we're there to occupy them in perpetuity.

Bolton repeats over and over that "frankly I don't care what happens to Iraq politically", and in reference to other developing nations having local employment agreements with multinationals so why not in Iraq now he laughingly says "Because those are highly inefficient requirements for the oil companies."
