It's called a voiced alveolar flap, and it's very common in North American accents when 't' or 'tt' are used between vowels. E.g. 'better' sounds a lot like 'bedder'.
It's very closely related to the nasal flap that makes 'twenty' sound like 'twenny' or 'Toronto' like 'Tronno'.
Wah-tur. That's how pretty much everyone I know (West Coast) says it.
