Bush confirms human rights less important than oil

Bush administration moves to block human rights lawsuit against Exxon Mobil in Indonesia. Not because the lawsuit is without merit, but because if Exxon was punished for colluding with the Indonesian military to slaughter the natives for easier access to gas, then the military regime might be less cooperative in the "war on terror". That's just freakin' great.
