McCain: Iraq War was for Oil

It seems to be difficult to continue and perpetuate lies and misleading statements.  Perhaps that’s why George Bush says so little to the American public – the less he talks, the less chance there is of another visible blunder.  Crooks and Liars reports on John McCain finally “slipping” and telling the truth in John McCain admits Iraq War was over oil.  McCain’s statement:

“My friends, I will have an energy policy which will eliminate our dependence on oil from Middle East that will then prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East.”

And related commentary:

Think about how amazing this is. McCain is essentially saying that our quest to “spread democracy” throughout the Middle East is a sham. It has nothing to do with freeing oppressed people, or protecting Israel, or defending ourselves against future attacks. It’s about gaining control of foreign oil. Stunning. Will this get any significant media play?

It’s unlikely that this will have any impact on the majority of voters, most of whom can’t be bothered with facts, evidence and reason.
