Rep. Chris Shays: We’re there for the oil

On C-Span’s Washington Journal yesterday, Rep. Christopher Shays has a rare Republican moment of non-talking point candor. When asked by a caller why we are still in Iraq, Shays admits it’s because we just can’t let any other country control that oil. [Click the pic for the vid.]

Joshua Holland at AlterNet: The Battle for Iraq is About Oil and Democracy, Not Religion!

LSB: of course it's about the oil - it always has been about the oil. But Shays shows his stupidity once again - BY ADMITTING IT! I guess he forgot to bring the Republican talking points with him to the interview.
