Get us a new House Intellingence Chair, Nancy!!! 
This one is too ignorant.

The dialogue went like this:

Al Qaeda is what, I asked, Sunni or Shia?

“Al Qaeda, they have both,” Reyes said. “You’re talking about predominately?”

“Sure,” I said, not knowing what else to say.

“Predominantly — probably Shiite,” he ventured.

A breathtaking display of stupidity from Congressman Reyes. These are the people who will be providing "oversight" to the Administration's war on terror?

How did Nancy appoint someone so ignorant? (Hint: Nancy, under the spell of John "Let's move our quick reaction force to Okinawa" Murtha, is ignorant herself.)

We ought to be ruthless in hounding this bastard until he either gets himself a Middle East for Dummies book or resigns in disgrace.

Sorry, but I expect my House Intel Chair to have better than a sixth-grade grasp of who our enemies are in the middle east, and what states are sponsors of which terror groups.

There's no excuse for this level of ignorance from a sitting Congressman.


Splash, out


(Hat tip: Hot Air)

I have to agree, if it's like you report here, we need to be sacred, very scared!
I almost forgot, in light of the fact that it is now, OK from the point of view of both parties to solicit sex and or to transmit messages with graphic sexual content to minors working under you within your organization, with no threat of penalties, I wonder what else we can expect.

Just too bad the same rules don't seem to apply to the general public, hundreds of thousands of which have been imprisoned, and had their names permanently put on offender list.

We need to keep a better eye on these people, that air up at the top must be polluted.
Wow...the red herrings are flying fast and furious, there, Tom!!!

Oooh, and "hundreds of thousands?" What planet are you on?
I knew a guy, the son of a friend of mine, who was maybe 18 1/2, recent arrival from Nicaragua, anyway the girl down the street, 17, took a liking to him and would sneak out of her window and in to his... OK. Guess what happened to him, a year in state prison, and deported.

I did not add up the actual numbers, but the list on the National offender list is long.
Very few states penalize 18/17 as statutory rape. The general rule for states having penalties for this kind of thing are 1) anything under 16 is a no-go; or, 2) one partner aged 16 or 17, the other partner more than two years older. 18.5/17 nets a year in jail? I don't think that's very common.
CNN has picked this up... http://www.cnn.com/POLITICS/blogs/politicalticker/2006/12/incoming-house-intelligence-chief.html
