Gaffe or Ignorance By Obama

I'm going to call in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and give them a new mission, and that is to bring the war in Iraq to a close. We are going to get out.
Only a small problem. The JCoS don't have command over U.S. military forces. Did Obama just make an honest gaffe or does our next potential president not know the chain of command on a VERY important topic such as this? You also have to notice the outright bias of the media. Back in 1999, then Gov. Bush was running for office and he was asked to name the leaders of Chechnya, Taiwan, India and Pakistan. He only got one of them. The media had a field day with it. Something tells me you won't see anything like that here. If anyone in the media is actually brave enough to call him out on it, he'll just laugh it off and they'll eat it up. I mean, after all, the Messiah is never wrong.
