Amusing misprint of the day

From Ha'aretz; the misprint is in bold:
[Sen. Barack] Obama calls for an urgent escalation of economic pressure on Iran, and backed this up yesterday by announcing his Iran Sanctions Enabling Act.

Obama's Iran Sanctions Enabling Act would require the federal government to publish a list of companies, to be updated every six months, with investments exceeding $20 million in Iran's energy sector. A similar House bill is sponsored by Reps. Barney Frank and Tom Lantos, with one crucial difference: Obama's bill cannot be rescinded until the Iranian government President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's calls for the destruction of Israel.
Obama's call for "war by other means" against Iran isn't new; it reflects, for example, his exchange with Dennis Kucinich during one of the Presidential debates, as well as his broader interventionist streak. Not that he's that different from almost all the other Presidential candidates, not to mention the actual President.
