I’d like to say this is unbelievable, but the problem is that it’s quite believable… and exactly as expected.

WASHINGTON —London Times- He is expected to have an acute understanding of terrorist groups and their threats to American interests. But the incoming chairman of a congressional intelligence committee was yesterday struggling to explain his ignorance of Al Qaeda and Hezbollah.  Silvestre Reyes, the Democrat chosen to head the House of Representatives committee, was asked whether members of Al Qaeda came from the Sunni or the Shia branch of Islam.  “Al Qaeda, they have both,” he answered, adding: “Predominantly probably Shi’ite.”  In fact, Al Qaeda was founded by Usama bin Laden as a Sunni organisation and views Shia Muslims as heretics. The centuries-old now fuels the militias and death squads in Iraq.

If anyone needed further proof (I doubt they did) that the Democrats have absolutely no idea whatsoever what to do about the situation in Iraq, that they really don’t have “a better way”, they need look no further than this.

People, this is the guy they want to run the intelligence area for the Democrats, and he doesn’t have a bloody clue as to what’s happening over there.

Welcome to the world of government with Democrats in charge.
