McCain can't tell Sunni from Shia!

Hey conservatives! Your candidate, John McCain, doesn't know the difference between Sunni and Shia and al-Queda! What a foreign policy "expert!" At least he's carrying Joe Lieberman along to correct him! Even George W. Bush, moron extraordinare, figured the difference out a year or two ago. Are you feeling better about your candidate yet? hahaha

from the Washington Post:

Speaking to reporters in Amman, the Jordanian capital, McCain said he and two Senate colleagues traveling with him continue to be concerned about Iranian operatives "taking al-Qaeda into Iran, training them and sending them back."

Pressed to elaborate, McCain said it was "common knowledge and has been reported in the media that al-Qaeda is going back into Iran and receiving training and are coming back into Iraq from Iran, that's well known. And it's unfortunate." A few moments later, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, standing just behind McCain, stepped forward and whispered in the presidential candidate's ear. McCain then said: "I'm sorry, the Iranians are training extremists, not al-Qaeda."

The mistake threatened to undermine McCain's argument that his decades of foreign policy experience make him the natural choice to lead a country at war with terrorists. In recent days, McCain has repeatedly said his intimate knowledge of foreign policy make him the best equipped to answer a phone ringing in the White House late at night.

the rest is here
