This is a troubling New York Times op-ed by a former Reagan and Bush advisor -- it advises yet another state AG group suit. I despise many OPEC nations, but it's not clear to me how an agreement between foreign sovereigns, entered into on foreign soil, violates US law. Of course, it's also not clear to me how a foreign warrior trying to kill Americans on foreign soil gets US constitutional rights, either -- so I guess I just don't "get it."
