VIDEO: Rep. Curt Clawson Mistakes US Officials for Indian Officials

Via foreignpolicy.com

Once in a while you get a gaffe recorded on video that is so amazing, it deserves to be shared far and wide.  This is one such moment.

Last Thursday, Rep. Clawson (R-FL) made a huge error in Congress by mistaking Nisha Biswal of the State Dept. and Arun Kumar of the Commerce Dept. for a delegation from India.  It’s a comical oversight, considering that both US officials are participating in sworn testimony, and were announced beforehand.

Clawson, who really did have substantive business dealings with India, apologized the next day.
