Operation Iraqi Liberation (OIL)?
Could it really be true that the original name for Operation Iraqi Freedom was Operation Iraqi Liberation, or OIL? Well…. I’m not quite cynical enough to believe this administration is stupid enough to name the operation for the reason we are there (oil), but I do believe this administration is that arrogant.
And apparently, it might be so. Because there are links off both the White House’s website as well as Senator Jim Bunning’s website. And many, many others. You can run the Google search yourself if you want to see more results.
