That's what we've come to expect, though, from the "military expert" who still doesn't know the difference between tactics and strategies, doesn't know Sunni from Shiia, ignored the fact that a so-called safe stroll through a Baghdad market depended on flak jackets and Blackhawks, doesn't know that Spain is a European ally, and -- despite numerous international joyrides with his loyal vassals Lieberman and Graham -- probably doesn't know which country he's in much of the time.
Maybe he's still working on the number of houses he owns.
