The Obama Administration’s Assistant Secretary of the Navy Dennis McGinn:
“SECRETARY MCGINN: “It’s unfortunate that years ago energy was so politicized. But, I think we’re getting over that very, very quickly, and people are realizing that we’re doing this not just because we’re closet tree-huggers or anything like that — we are — but it is because we are in the business of fielding the most expeditionary capable Navy and Marine Corps team we possibly can, and that is an enduring principle.” “

Looks to me that energy is just as politicized today to advance a “green” party ideology, not military capability.
