Last week, the incoming Head of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, showed the world, and our enemies, that he doesn't have a working knowledge of our enemy. To some, this may not seem earth-shattering, but it's a fundamental error on our part to allow this man to actually take over this committee, let alone be on it.

Our enemies must be pleased.

Here's your cheat sheet.

Jack Kelly, Irish Pennants, shares his thoughts on the matter, as well as those of the man who wrote the book:

Sun Tzu was a Chinese general who died in 496 B.C. His "Art of War" is the oldest surviving treatise on military strategy. It is still considered the best by most strategists today.

"If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles" Sun Tzu wrote. "If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle."

Words to live by; words to die by.
