US Senator Roland Burris may have had a Freudian Slip followed by fumbling comments as he spoke to reports on his Monday trip to Iraq:
At one point during a conference call with reporters, Burris said he had landed in Beirut, not Baghdad. He also said he was “a thousand miles away,” underestimating the distance to Iraq. And he mispronounced the name of U.S. Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of the Multi-National Force-Iraq.
I actually think a Looks Like Beirut Certificate is in order, don’t you? Maybe that would help straighten him up.
