out the Defense Department is still buying a whole lot of oil from them  - to
wit, at least $980 million worth. BP's still-valid contracts make

what part of "talking out of both sides of your mouth" they don't
understand.

"BP is an active participant in multiple ongoing Defense Logistics
Agency acquisition programs." - Defense Logistics Agency spokesperson Mimi
Schirmacher.
