Remember when liberals used to harangue Bush about oil?

Where’s the outrage against these savages?

The article she links to is at Breitbart:

The terrorist group Islamic State, formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), could be making up to $3 million a day in illicit oil sales using captured oil fields in Iraq and Syria. Iraqi officials are warning that the jihadists are selling their own oil in ISIS-controlled areas and shipping it out to shady buyers in nearby countries.

According to NBC, the Islamic State – which is attempting to transition from terrorist group to, precisely, a state – has begun to sell gas from oil fields and wells it has acquired at gas stations in Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq and ISIS’s de facto capital in Iraq (the capital of the Islamic State is officially Raqqa, Syria). It is also said to be selling oil barrels to black market traders in Turkey at $25 per barrel.
