U.S. FINALLY CUTS IRAQI OIL SUPPLY TO SYRIA
"It's a major move by the United States and will have a significant affect on Syria," a senior intelligence source said. "The Syrians are very upset."
Intelligence sources said Iraqi oil pumped to Syria over the last two years had been a major source of revenue for the regime of President Bashar Assad. Iraq had sold the oil to Syria for about $11 a barrel and the Assad regime exported the fuel at market prices and kept the difference. WorldTribune.com
