Sunni? Shia? Whatever.

The incoming Chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee is off to a bad start.

In an interview, Silvester Reyes was asked whether Al Qaeda was a Sunni or Shia institution. 50-50 shot, right. Sil said Shia. Wrong. He was then asked whether Hezbollah was Sunni or Shia. Reyes chose not to answer. The BBC reports that Mr. Reyes' office spun the incident by saying that their boss is "acutely aware of al-Qaeda's desire to harm Americans."

Man, it don't matter whether they's a Sunni or a Shia....all I know is that they's all tryin' to kill us.

Us versus Them....that's all you need to know.

You can be sure that the BBC had a field day with this one. Read the snooty, we're-smarter-than-those-stupid-Americans report here.
