It's not an urban legend. In the opening days of the Iraq War, President Bush's Press Secretary Ari Fleischer uses the name "Operation Iraqi Liberation" (OIL) as the name of the Iraq war.

When it was pointed out the acronym spelled out "OIL", the mission name was quickly changed to "Operation Iraqi Freedom".
