On Sean Hannity's show last night, Hannity tried to pretend he knew a little something about foreign policy, and Sen. John McCain, R.-Ariz., set him straight.

"It was you and people on Fox that said in Libya, 'We didn't know who they were and let's not help these people,'" McCain said. "They had an election and they elected moderates. They rejected Islamists. And yes, there are al-Qaida factors and there are extremists in Libya today, but the Libyan people are friends of ours, and they support us, and they support democracy. So you were wrong about -- so you were wrong about Libya."
