The History of Oil

As the caption on GoogleVideo reads, “Robert Newman tactfully documents the real story of the politics of oil … .” Much thanks to brother AbdulHaq of SalafiManhaj.com for emailing me the link to this film.

There isn’t a lot mentioned in Newman‘s presentation that I haven’t heard already (I’ve already read various articles discussing the things he mentions on sites like Information Clearing House and whatREALLYhappened), but it’s still a pretty good watch. The film’s about 45mins long, so for those of you who don’t like sitting through long videos, you’ll have to suffer for a bit to enjoy this one. For those of you who like this kind of stuff, it’d say it’s worth the watch. It doesn’t hurt that Newman’s pretty funny either.
