A $100 Million Conflict Of Interest

Greenwald trains his fire on Peter Galbraith:

What Galbraith kept completely concealed all these years -- as he traipsed around advocating for Kurdish autonomy -- was that a company he formed in 2004 came to acquire a large stake in a Kurdish oil field whereby, as the NYT put it, he "stands to earn perhaps a hundred million or more dollars."  In other words, he had a direct -- and vast -- financial stake in the very policies which he was publicly advocating in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and countless other American media outlets, where he was presented as an independent expert on the region.

The lack of disclosure is shocking.
