McCain confuses Shia and Sunni
Sen. John McCain, traveling in the Middle East to promote his foreign policy expertise, misidentified in remarks Tuesday which broad category of Iraqi extremists are allegedly receiving support from Iran.I'll have to look into this further, but it seems to blow any foreign policy credibility he has completely out of the water. It's frightening that he could make a mistake like this.
He said several times that Iran, a predominately Shiite country, was supplying the mostly Sunni militant group, al-Qaeda. In fact, officials have said they believe Iran is helping Shiite extremists in Iraq.
