Aw, Grandpa! Another McCain Senior's Moment

Poor old John McCain, getting dumber by the day.

Yesterday, on FOX News, McCain came to the defence of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's gaffe about 9/11 terrorists entering the United States through Canada. Even though Napolitano had already apologized for her mistake, it didn't stop McCain from putting both left feet in his mouth: "Well, some of the 9/11 hijackers did come through Canada, as you know."

Coming from a guy who believes Shiite Iran fosters Sunni al-Qaeda and that Iraq borders Afghanistan and that the American economy should be entrusted to Phil Gramm, I guess this delusion is to be expected.

Thank god this guy didn't become president.

Was there not one of the those 9/11 people who entered the US from Canada? I recall watching a programme on BBC in England in 2006 that said one of them did.

Nope, no reason to. They were able to get visitor or student visa status through the front door. They went to flight schools in the U.S. to learn how to pilot those aircraft into their targets. Why on earth would they feel the need to risk detection at two borders rather than just one?
