Only good thing about the war in Iraq...
...is that this guy, and others, haven't been overthrown in CIA-sponsored coups. (Not for lack of trying, you could say.) Chavez warns US at Opec summit
"Saud al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, told the session: 'My fear is that any mention that Opec makes of studying the issue of the dollar will in itself have an impact.'
A microphone mistakenly left on meant that the comments of al-Faisal were accidentally broadcast to journalists on Saturday.
He rejected the proposal by Iran and Venezuela who wanted the meeting to discuss the weak dollar, saying: 'There are media people outside waiting to catch this point and they will add to it [exaggerate] and we may find that the dollar collapses.'"
