Sunni Versus Shiite

Oh, man, this is ridiculous. You may recall a little while back that CQ's Jeff Stein asked a couple of GOP members of the Intelligence Committee about the difference between Shiites and Sunnis and they, like various FBI counterterrorism officials, didn't know anything about it. Now Silvestre Reyes turns out not to know that al-Qaeda is Sunni and Hezbollah is Shiite. Shockingly, this woeful ignorance is an improvement over those dudes he'd asked earlier.

This is very, very pathetic.
