Texas Democrat, Rep. Silvestre Reyes, who House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asked to head the Intelligence Committee when the Dems take over in January, does not know the difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, much less AL Qaeda and Hezbollah. When asked by CQ National Security Editor Jeff Stein whether al Qaeda is one or the other of the two major branches of Islam — Sunni or Shiite — Reyes answered “they are probably both,” then ventured “Predominantly — probably Shiite.” WRONG ANSWER PAL.
