Asked by Diane Sawyer whether the "the situation in Afghanistan in precarious and urgent," McCain responded: "I think it's serious. . . . It's a serious situation, but there's a lot of things we need to do. We have a lot of work to do and I'm afraid it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq/Pakistan border."

He's also having a hard time remembering that Czechoslovakia is a long-defunct country. Here's the piece from The Huffington Post.

The Right-Wing has long been ignorant on many things. But one thing they're the most ignorant on is anything overseas. 99 percent of the GOP has little clue that McCain made a major mistake in this statement. And Fox, Drudge and Rush certainly aren't going to report it.
If anything is surprising, it's that the MSM is holding McCain accountable for this statement. I can only hope this trend continues.
Does anyone remember when Bush mixed up Austria and Australia in front of Australian premier John Howard?
See video here of Bush confusing OPEC and APEC.
