Obama: Drill, baby, drill... in Brazil

From Investors Business Daily:

Energy Policy: While leaving U.S. oil and jobs in the ground, our itinerant president tells a South American neighbor that we'll help it develop its offshore resources so we can one day import its oil. WHAT?!?
That should be WTF?!
Now, with a seven-year offshore drilling ban in effect off of both coasts, on Alaska's continental shelf and in much of the Gulf of Mexico — and a de facto moratorium covering the rest — Obama tells the Brazilians:

"We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you're ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers."
Is this an energy policy designed to reduce dependence on foreign oil? or to increase it?

Michelle Malkin asks, "why don’t we send Ken Salazar over there [Brazil], too?"
