This is how the 4th estate perpetuates spin:
Obama foreign policy claim stirs controversy

Barack Obama has long argued that he has shown better foreign policy judgment than his remaining presidential rivals, specifically in opposing the Iraq war.

But at a fund-raiser in San Francisco over the weekend, he reportedly made the case that he has more foreign policy experience as well -- a claim getting a lot of blowback from presumptive Republican nominee John McCain and Democratic contender Hillary Clinton.
Obama never claimed more experience, as the quote from the Huffington post in the article proves:
"I think a lot of people assume that might be some kind of military thing to make me look more commander-in-chief-like. Ironically, this is an area -- foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain."
Not experience, knowledge and understanding. and I think this is arguably true.

Hillary voted for the war. John McCain wants more war. They have more experience, but less understanding or knowledge. Especially McCain who has lied and flip flopped over and over about Iraq. And when he wasn't lying or flip flopping he was proving his ignorance.

But all you're going to hear is that Obama 'claimed to have more experience.' Just another manufactured controversy from the beltway media that would rather report on haircuts and cleavage and can't be bothered to get anything right.
