Sigh

Then:
[A]bout ten years ago, Osama bin Laden stated that his target price for oil is $144 a barrel.... I would like to impress upon this Committee that $144 a barrel oil will be perceived as a victory for the Jihadist movement and a reaffirmation that the economic warfare component of its campaign against the West is a resounding success.
Now:
In New York, crude oil for August contract traded at 145.23 dollar a barrel, after touching a high of $ 145.85, the highest since trading began in 1983.
Mission accomplished, I guess.
