"Headline of the Day"

Warren Strobel and Jonathan Landay report: “McCain misstates some facts in debate on foreign policy.”

They draw some attention to, among other things, his curious insistence that Pakistan was a “failed state” in 1999. I suppose that’s not precisely a bright line factual issue, but I don’t recall anyone else as having described it that way. It suggests that McCain, for all his arrogant insistence that poking around in defense department authorizations and loudly clamoring for maximum force as a response to every problem abroad, isn’t actually all that well-informed about the world beyond our borders or the basic contours of debates.
