Obama and Senate Banking Committee

At a press conference in Sderot Israel today, Barack Obama said,
“Just this past week, we passed out of the out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee - which is my committee - a bill to call for divestment from Iran as way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon,” (CNN)
Sounds good--Except that Barack Obama is not a member of that committee! Is this just another in a growing list of "gaffes?" Or does Barack Obama have a serious problem when it comes to telling the truth?

Since he has been running for president since he has been a freshman senator, it would be interesting for someone to research his attendance record for the committees he is on. He is probably telling an aid right now, "You know I would have sworn Harry told me I was on that banking committee."

Me thinks an RRRRRR would be roasted for something like this.
