Can you tell the difference between a Shiite and a Sunni?

Can you? More importantly, can the people who are running the War on Terror? The answer may frighten you, but it shouldn't surprise you. Here's a taste:

Take Representative Terry Everett, a seven-term Alabama Republican who is vice chairman of the House intelligence subcommittee on technical and tactical intelligence. (emphasis added)
“Do you know the difference between a Sunni and a Shiite?” I asked him a few weeks ago.
Mr. Everett responded with a low chuckle. He thought for a moment: “One’s in one location, another’s in another location. No, to be honest with you, I don’t know. I thought it was differences in their religion, different families or something.”
