We’ve gone to the rallies. We’ve seen what he actually believes. It’s what I believe. The audio story quotes Lt. Col. Brian Maka, who said, “Well, generally a $1 increase in the price of a barrel of oil on the open market translates into an increase for the whole department of $130 million.” We then made a math error, suggesting that the recent $50 a barrel rise in oil prices has cost the Pentagon over half a billion dollars.
