Give Me My Iraqi Oil

I heard on the news today that Iraq oil exports are now greater than they have been since 1989 under Saddam. The oil was sold to 28 international oil companies.

I thought that the United States did Iraq such a great favor by removing Saddam Hussein and giving Iraq a constitution, freedom, elections, stability, liberty, etc.? Then why is Iraq not selling U.S. oil companies oil for $10 a barrel or giving away half of its production to the United States? We expended blood and treasure and we can’t even get cheap oil. What is going on here? I guess there were other reasons why the U.S. invaded Iraq. Perhaps even 27 of them.
