Lieberman Repeats McCain Gaffe

On Fox News Sunday yesterday, McCain patsy Independent-Democrat Joe Lieberman asserted that, had Obama enacted his policies in the past, he couldn’t be in Iraq today because it would be too dangerous. He then went on to say that “al-Qaeda and Iran extremists” would be in charge of the country.

Of course, if you are one of those people who know that the Iranian ayatollahs are Shiites and al-Qaeda is made of Salafist Sunnis, then you recognize that this doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. Iran and al-Qaeda are not allies and do not work together, so at the very least they can’t both be in control of Iraq. But Lieberman is surrogating for the candidate of foreign policy knowledge, according to the media narrative, so it will undoubtedly slide.
