As Laura Rozen and I have reported, it appears that President Obama is soon to name David Goldwyn, an adviser to oil companies and dictators, to a key administration post, where he will help shape American energy policy.
Goldwyn is currently the executive director of the U.S.-Turkmenistan Business Council, where he promotes closer ties to one of the world’s sole remaining Stalinist dictatorships. Last week, the Department of Energy sponsored a workshop “on Pipeline Integrity and Management…for the Government of Turkmenistan, as another step in advancing U.S.-Turkmen cooperation in the energy sector.” The workshop and a reception were “sponsored with the generous support of the US-Turkmenistan Business Council, Chevron, and ExxonMobil.”

"It is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one’s acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis."
