Not that sore

Of course, Matthew Yglesias, David Weigel and others are correct that Barack Obama meant that conflict involving Israel, not Israel itself, is a "constant sore." But wasn't this the kind of poorly worded, poorly considered statement we can expect from a candidate with miniscule experience in international relations? And isn't it worrisome that he says things even inadvertently that, as Jennifer Rubin puts it, are "likely to make Islamic militants swoon"?
