Chevron’s Public Relations Gets More Expensive

Reuters reports that the San Ramon-based oil company Chevron is donating $10 million to the United States Institute of Peace, which despite its granola moniker is funded by the US Congress and dedicated to expanding diplomacy and nation-building. The Institute for Peace is most notable for coordinating the research and drafting of the recent Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group report. From now on, future iterations of such reports will be presented in the Chevron Theater.
