Read and weep

Al Qaeda is what, I asked, Sunni or Shia?

“Al Qaeda, they have both,” [incoming House Intelligence Chair Sylvestre] Reyes said. “You’re talking about predominately?”

“Sure,” I said, not knowing what else to say.

“Predominantly — probably Shiite,” he ventured...

And Hezbollah? I asked him. What are they?

“Hezbollah. Uh, Hezbollah...”

He laughed again, shifting in his seat.

“Why do you ask me these questions at five o’clock? Can I answer in Spanish? Do you speak Spanish?”
