NOW can we look into Cheney’s “Energy Task Force”?

Richard Ellis sent this letter to the NYT:

With all the casting about to figure out who to blame for BP’s catastrophic oil spill, it would appear that the time has come to revisit the embargo placed on the April 2001 meeting of President Bush’s “Energy Task Force.” We do know that present at the meeting were representatives of Exxon-Mobil, Conoco, Royal Dutch Shell Oil, and the American subsidiary of BP.

Isn’t it time that the details of that meeting were revealed once and for all? Even though knowing what promises were made and what deals were struck will do nothing to staunch the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, it might help us to understand why it was allowed to happen in the first place.
