Cheney's Energy Task Force

One of the longest-running mysteries of the Bush administration-- who was on Vice President Cheney's energy panel in 2001-- has apparently been solved, courtesy of the few remaining journalists at the Washington Post. For the most, everyone's cynical suspicions (Exxon executives! Ken Lay!) have been vindicated.

I know it will come as a shock that the Bush energy policy was crafted by industry insiders.

What is also telling is that on the days when environmental groups came in to speak to the panel, Cheney didn't attend. And by the time of those meetings, "the initial draft of the task force was substantially complete." Gosh!

Of course, there's been so many new, sexier scandals since 2001, this'll go nowhere.
