Just cuz it's in the name of the committee doesn't mean it's in the job description!
The incoming Democratic chairman of the House intelligence committee could not describe Hezbollah and incorrectly described al-Qaeda's Islamic roots in a recent interview.

Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-Tex.), whom incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) named earlier this month to chair the panel, formally known as the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, was asked by a reporter from Congressional Quarterly whether al-Qaeda was Sunni or Shiite. "Predominantly -- probably Shiite," Reyes replied.

From Osama bin Laden down, al-Qaeda's leadership is comprehensively Sunni and subscribes to a form of Sunni Islam known for not tolerating theological deviation.

In fact, U.S. officials blame al-Qaeda's late leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, for the surge in sectarian violence between Sunnis and Shiites.

Asked to describe the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, according to a story published online Friday, Reyes responded "Hezbollah. Uh, Hezbollah" and then said, "Why do you ask me these questions at 5 o'clock?"

The Texas congressman later added: "Speaking only for myself, it's hard to keep things in perspective and in the categories."

I'm off to Canada. Good luck with that whole War on Terror thing!

Seriously, can you imagine the glee with which this would've been reported if a Republican said those things? Bill Keller would've given birth right there on the spot. For real! He would've had a child! Right there in the NY Times newsroom! In the same spot where all the important US foreign policy decisions are made! Sure, he would've shared custody with Jon Stewart and Keith Olbermann - he's cool like that - but he would know deep down inside in his special place that it was his baby. And he'd really, really want to name it Barack but after some heavy duty soul searching he'd reluctantly accept that "Barack Keller" just doesn't have what the kids call a "dope flow." Then he'd seriously consider just saying "what the fuck" because as a teenager he saw a movie that told him that "sometimes you just have to say 'what the fuck,'" which is how he makes his decisions to publish classified information that helps Al Qaeda, so anyway he'd seriously consider just saying "what the fuck" and going with Obama, but only for a couple minutes before he'd give a little sheepish laugh at the fact that he was actually flirting with that idea, and in the end he'd go with Old Faithful, John Fitzgerald Keller, because that's what all liberals whose last name begins with K are supposed to name their male babies! And they'd all live happily ever after in a world where everyone thinks exactly like they do. A world without disease or famine or guns or Republicans. A world where hobbits dance freely and the unicorns are actually pretty friendly once they get to know you. A perfect world. The End.
