The fact is none of it is the USA's or any USA corporation.
It's not who governs the business but who gets the money, if it were the former than GE's huge assets abroad would be owned by those countries and not be considered a USA Soft Power.
The Iraqis are getting the money from their oil production, most of which is going to Iraq and to Europe.
Before Saddam was toppled, legally, France owned 27% of Iraqi Oil by an agreement with Saddam, and was given a 60 billion dollar contract to Total-Fina-Elf.
So in a sense...the US has liberated Iraq and returned the Oil to them.
