Oh, so the DADDY's war was the one about oil...
John McCain "clarifies" his "war for oil" remarks:
"No, no, I was talking about that we had fought the Gulf War for several reasons," McCain told reporters.

"If the word `again' was misconstrued, I want us to remove our dependency on foreign oil for national security reasons, and that's all I mean," McCain said.

"The Congressional Record is very clear: I said we went to war in Iraq because of weapons of mass destruction," he said.
