Lee Camp Features Gen. Petraeus Oil Wars Video on "Redacted Tonight"


By Steve Horn - Posted on 08 June 2014

Comedian Lee Camp premiered a never-before-televised video of former CIA Director General David Petraeus  — who now serves as Chairman of the Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR)'s Global Institute  —  introduced in front of the North Dakota National Guard by Treasurer Kelly Schmidt at an April 29 event in Bismarck, North Dakota.

In the original video I initially obtained via Freedom of Information Act and published on YouTube, Schmidt thanked the troops at the National Guard event for fighting wars for oil "over there" so that we can all have a dependent flow of oil over here. The back-drop of Petraeus being in town was a field trip to the Bakken Shale oil fracking fields, which according to Schmidt's short introduction, has helped make oil wars less necessary. 

Televised on the second episode of his new show, " Redacted Tonight," Camp introduced the video, showed a small portion of it (the whole thing is close to an hour and 14 minutes) and produced a four and a half minute segment, which packs a punch, provides some good laughs and covers a lot of ground.

The oil wars video was obtained and published in part two of an ongoing investigative series published on DeSmogBlog.com about the Petraeus fracking field trip. Part three is currently being worked on and will be published soon.

For now, sit back, watch the video and stay tuned for part three of the series on DeSmogBlog.com. And if you like the video or any of the articles, please share them with your friends, family and colleagues!
