Iraq Clusterfuck: Oh, so now it's about oil after all 

Can't these guys get their stories straight?

"If Zarqawi and bin Laden gain control of Iraq, they would create a new training ground for future terrorist attacks," Bush said. "They'd seize oil fields to fund their ambitions. They could recruit more terrorists by claiming a historic victory over the United States and our coalition."

A one-time oilman, Bush has rejected charges that the war in Iraq is a struggle to control the nation's vast oil wealth. The president has avoided making links between the war and Iraq's oil reserves, but the soaring cost of gasoline has focused attention on global petroleum sources.

Gee, looks like the "no blood for oil" tinfoil hat types were right all along, doesn't it? Who knew? Guess I'm going to have to buld me some giant puppets after all...

Of course, Bin Laden—isn't this the first time Inerrant Boy has mentioned that name in awhile?—or Zarqawi aren't going to take over; an Islamic theoracy is. That being the "noble cause"...
