Bending the Third Rail
Because We Should, We Can, We Do

Digby picked up on this comment by Sandra Day O'Connor. I heard it too and wondered:
SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR: We might go all the way back to World War II, where the United States continued to have discussions with Stalin. He was the enemy, not our friend, but we continued to have discussions. And I think we pretty much have to do the same here.
What? I originally chalked it up to a senior moment. But interestingly, no one corrected her.

Updated: The new House Intelligence leader doesn't know if Osama bin Laden is Sunni or Shia. Shouldn't the wise people of Washington know something about the middle east?
