CORRECTION: Look how much Bill Clinton knows about Lebanese politics

"Lebanon has taken in over one million refugees (its total population does not exceed five million), and it has not had a president since 2014 because the Muslim-controlled Parliament has blocked a Christian from taking the post.Lebanese law requires the president to be a Maronite Christian."  And the funny part is that US media treat Bill like he is some foreign policy expert. (thanks Marc)

PS The Daily Star of Lebanon deleted this section of the speech by Clinton and only celebrated that: Bill Clinton praises Lebanon.

PPS Marc corrects me. The sectarian reference to Lebanon was not in the text of Clinton's speech but in the text of the right-wing nutty Breitbart news.
