Somebody Ought To Get Him A Map

Glenn Kessler reports in the Washington Post:

Mitt Romney repeated his contention that Syria is Iran’s “route to the sea.” This is a puzzling claim, considering that Syria shares no border with Iran — Iraq and Turkey are in the way — and that Iran has about 1,500 miles of coastline along the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman, leading to the Arabian Sea. The Fact Checker column has looked into this before.

Romney made the same mistake at the Arizona GOP Debate, at the AIPAC’s Annual Summit, and during interviews on MSNBC, on Fox News Radio, and in the Washington Post.
