The Democrats are on the eve of taking control of Congress, the House and the Senate. It is being hailed as a time of change, the American people's voice being heard. And so it is with great anticipation that people await the beginning of the great "change" that will be taking place. Here is your first good indication of what to expect from the Democrats as the majority party, from the wires;

"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Rep. Silvestre Reyes of Texas, who incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tapped to head the Intelligence Committee when the Democrats take over in January, failed a quiz of basic questions about al Qaeda and Hezbollah, two of the key terrorist organizations the intelligence community has focused on since the September 11, 2001 attacks.
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."
That is wrong. Al Qaeda was founded by Osama bin Laden as a Sunni organization and views Shiites as heretics.
Reyes could also not answer questions put by Stein about Hezbollah, a Shiite group on the U.S. list of terrorist organizations that is based in Southern Lebanon"

This, my friends, is your new leader of the Intelligence Committee as of January 2007. A few things to note,once again, right out of the chute the Democrats are shown to be ignorant and careless when it comes to National Security. Second, this once again affirms the lack of leadership one can expect from Nancy Pelosi. She is simply out of her league and unable to handle the big stage. And finally what we are seeing is what happens when you allow the children to play with adult stuff. It is like watching a child attempt to drive a standard shift car.

But do not worry , the adults will take control again in 2008. It will not take long for the American public to realize the car drives a lot smoother when an adult is behind the wheel!
