Intellegence Committee Chair without Intelligence?

This further highlights my points that the democratic party doesn't have a single CLUE on the threat that Islamic Extremists pose on the United States.

The question proved nettlesome for Rep. Silvestre Reyes of Texas, incoming Democratic chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

"Predominantly -- probably Shi'ite," he said in a recent interview with Congressional Quarterly, a periodical that covers political and legislative issues in Congress.

Unfortunately for Reyes, the al Qaeda network led by Osama bin Laden is comprehensively Sunni and subscribes to a form of Sunni Islam known for not tolerating theological deviation.

But wait it gets better!

Asked to describe the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, Congressional Quarterly said Reyes responded: "Hezbollah. Uh, Hezbollah," and then said, "Why do you ask me these questions at five o'clock?"
I didn't know this information leaves your mind at 5 o'clock.
Maybe he didn't get the memo on Hezbollah?
You know that little faction of a tens of thousands militants that waged a war in the Middle East this past July with Israel. You know the group that prior to 5 o'clock was part of a proxy military of Iran. Those crazy Shi'tte's or is it Sunni? LOL....

Ok so lets just say that he is just a rookie Senator and didn't get briefed?

"As a member of the intelligence committee since before 9/11, I'm acutely aware of al Qaeda's desire to harm Americans. The intelligence committee will keep its eye on the ball and focus on the pressing security and intelligence issues facing us," Reyes said in the statement.
Ohh wait? So WTF were you doing during those Intel Briefings Mr. Reyes?
What did they all occur after 5 o'clock!

And these are the people we just entrusted the nations security to?
Lets not even get on the fact that Reyes used to be a border patrol agent.
Hmmmmm. How did that go again Mr. Reyes? 15-25 Million Illegal immigrants later?
