ROMNEY: "Syria is Iran's only ally in the Arab world. It's their route to the sea."I heard him say it during the debate, and thought it was weird to assert that, but maybe he knew something I didn't. Then I saw it mentioned again in this article from the Guardian. According to them, Romney has made the same mistake "at least five times before."
Here's a map of the area. I don't think Romney has looked at it -- it's pretty clear. So, why is he asserting this misinformation?
