"Straight Jacket Express" ?
In an interview with reporters on the back of his campaign bus, the “Straight Talk Express” Monday afternoon, McCain said that even in retrospect he would still have voted to authorize the war, as he did in 2002.
While McCain acknowledged that there was “a massive, colossal intelligence failure” that led up to the invasion of Iraq, he said that other countries had gathered the same, false intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

McCain said that conditions in Iraq would have gotten much worse if Hussein's regime had continued.
