Lieberman Mixes Up "Al Qaeda in Iran"
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg
Looks like John McCain's surrogates are taking it to a new level. Joe Lieberman today decides it's fun to blast Barack Obama. Except in the process he says this:
If we did what Sen. Obama wanted us to do last year, Al-Qaeda in Iran would be in control of Iraq today.
Oops! There's no such thing as Al Qaeda in Iran!
Over the past two weeks, McCain has confused Iran is training Al Qaeda with Iran is training Shi'a. He also mixed up the facts concerning the agreement to end fighting between the Mahdi Army and government forces. Lindsy Graham promised there would be 100,000 troops in Iraq by election day and then had to recant. This is becoming a recurring and embaressing problem. John McCain's national security team really needs to start minding its Qs and Ns.
But who cares. John McCain and his team know all there is to know about national security. No reason to question anything here.
