ABSTRACT
This article highlights the statements made by U.S. President George W. Bush in which he said that he would like to see Iraq's new government promote national unity by sharing its current and future oil revenues directly with the Iraqi people. President Bush said he had purposely floated the idea of a "royalty trust" in remarks to reporters, before he and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki and the new Iraqi Cabinet were expected to speak via videoconference--a meeting that turned out to be face-to-face. President Bush's embrace of an oil fund contrasted with the administration's prewar boasts that Iraq's oil revenues would be tapped to offset reconstruction costs.
