Get U.S. off the oil

An excellent column from former Democratic Congressman Martin Frost:
The U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs on March 22 held a half-day public hearing on “Foreign Policy and National Security Implications of Oil Dependence.” Given the challenges that our nation faces in the Middle East and our continued military presence in Iraq, few things could be more timely. The hearing was hardly noticed by the mainstream media.
Let's hope President Bush's words on this issue have actions and our current representatives have the guts to finally address this critical issue.

U.S. Must Get Head out of Sand on Oil Dependency
