Skip to comments.Democrats’ New Intelligence Chairman Needs a Crash Course on al Qaeda
Posted on 12/11/2006 7:15:30 AM PST by PurpleMan
The dialogue went like this:
Al Qaeda is what, I asked, Sunni or Shia? Al Qaeda, they have both, Reyes said. Youre talking about predominately? Sure, I said, not knowing what else to say. Predominantly probably Shiite, he ventured. He couldnt have been more wrong.
Al Qaeda is profoundly Sunni. If a Shiite showed up at an al Qaeda club house, theyd slice off his head and use it for a soccer ball.
Thats because the extremist Sunnis who make up al Qaeda consider all Shiites to be heretics.

I'm so glad they are in charge.
And they wonder why we worry.
If they have not figured it out after this long, what makes anyone think that they ever will? They only have a one track mind that that is get rid of Bush.
People bought into that bullship....hope they're satisfied.
Patty Murray believes al Qaeda's a day-care conglomerate...
If you haven't seen this reported by the MSM you won't see them your your word either.
Ah, Government...we need more of it at every level of society....It doesn't matter if its a planning and building dork at the county level or the head of the congressional intelligence office...they are all so busy trying to look like they know what they're doing and sounding official...whqat a farce...it'd be better if they really did know something, but those people are few and far between and don't make it up the political ladder...I'd starve before I would work for the socialist behemoth...who needs AlQaeda when we've got good ole, aw shucks, USA politicians..
Don't hold your breath.
Come on, now. Give the five-term Texas Democrat, 62, Silvestre Reyes, a break.
Is Al Qaeda made up of Sunnis or Shiites? How do you expect Mr. Reyes to know the difference? Both are foreign words, starting with the same letter.
Mr. Reyes, along with his entire Democratic Party, is so consumed with getting back into the White House, that they dont EVEN see the threat to our American way of life. Reyes cant be bothered to even try to understand the threat.
Typical liberal dumbass.
But...but...the Dems are all so smart. They know everything.
How this guy stayed on the committee, much less became the chairman, is beyond belief.
I remember what a big deal they made in 2000 campaign when Bush couldn't knew Musharraf was the general who assumed leadership of Pakistan after the coup, but couldn't recall his name. This, however, will likely be no big deal to the pressers.
Holy affirmative action, Batman, surely he's qualified for his position?
"These people need the fear of God put back into them."
Actually, they need the fear of Islamofascisits put back into them.
So we need the Sunnis on our side to help fight Iran
And Al Qaeda is Sunni
So we need The Shiites on our side to help fight Al Qaeda
And Iran is harboring and helping Al Qaeda
So....I think my head just exploded
Oh but the Dims know what they are doing...remember Folks, they ran on NO AGENDA!!...Why would anyone even think Democrate are not tuned in on terrorism?? The first thing they did was fire one of the best tried and true guys in the country who was cut off at the knees from day one, Donald Rumsfeld!!
Congressman Sgt. Silvestre Reyes would do well to hire himself a tutor on the fractious tribes in Iraq as well as all in the Arab world. That should be a prerequisite for all members on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Why do they send good men to do jobs with no background or knowledge about what they are doing?
"Why do they send good men to do jobs with no background or knowledge about what they are doing? "
Better... What is a congressman arrogantly and ingrantly answering quwtions he does NOT know the answer to. (apologies for ending in a preposition)
For the incoming chairman not to know this stuff. Well.
I remember when candidate Bush could not go through a litany of heads of state for some smart aleck Boston reporter...this Democrat won't get the same treatment from the broadcasters. He'll be lionized.
Democrats are bleak.
Smartest man Nancy knows!
**Rep. Silvestre Reyes**
In a way this is frightening, but in a way it is good.
Unelect the dimocrats in 2008!
BTW, it's Pelosi'fault!!!!!!!!
Any chance Carl Levin could sit in on this meeting?
ping to read during lunch
It will probably come crashing through his window, shortly after being hijacked.
You might find this of interest, too. I doubt the Congressman cares.
Aceh wary over new Sharia police
Reyes has been a sitting member of the Intelligence Committee for the past five years, has he not?
This report seems to constitute ample evidence that he hasn't been paying attention. At all. Why should he start now?
It's republicans and democrats alike. I'd be willing to bet that most of the people in congress would be unable to answer most of those questions.
"I'd be willing to bet that most of the people in congress would be unable to answer most of those questions."
This issue that HE was unable to tell the difference. Not every one of the 435 reps are going to be Head of the House Intelligence Committee.
And you're right, the head of the intelligence committee is criminal if he doesn't know the difference between Shiia and Sunni.
It's not just them, though. The Republicans also appear clueless in this regard.
Refer to my previous comments
New Intelligence Chairman Need a Crash Course on al Qaeda
I know, I know. I just thought for once I'd keep my editorializing out of the title.
back to the top (BTTT)
Now that we know without a doubt that al Qaeda is and has been in Iraq...except half the democratic party...I highly doubt they will ever admit these are the same people responsible 9/11. I grieve for this nation.
"Remember 9/11...because liberals love to forget!"
Demagogues don't care about Sunni or Shi'a, as long as Patsy Murray's favorite Al Qaeda day care centers are built.... they're called Madrassas, and yes they are busily rearing new generations of terrorists.
I won't print what I'm thinking...
"Can I answer in Spanish?
I won't print what I'm thinking..."
Personally, I would do it in any laguage. As hard as it sometimes is, Ol' Jimbo's a-tryin' ta keep us up to his lofty standards. :>)
LOL. But if I went ahead and spewed there isn't a cuss jar in the universe big enough to hold all the money I'd owe...
