From a McCain press conference earlier today:
Q: One thing [Obama] said was that he proposed disinvestment [from Iran] a year ago and you didn’t agree with it and so he’s wondering why you didn’t. And also he says he wanted to meet with Iranian leaders but he said there would preconditions, they would be carefully controlled meetings, and democracy could be used to leverage to force Iranian. Can you respond to those things?
JSM: Sure, I’ve never favored investment.
Q: It was disinvestment sir.
JSM: Look, I - we should never invest - well let me just say it’s very clear my record on whether we should in any way support terrorist organizations...
Q: And are you familiar with his disinvestment bill?
JSM: No, I am not familiar with it at all. I do not know if it passed the senate or had any hearing or anything else.
Just for the record, Obama's legislation (which Joe Lieberman co-sponsored) is being held up in the Senate right now by Republican Richard Shelby of Alabama -- but it passed the House by a 408-6 margin.
Seems like something McCain should have known. Then again, you say Sunni, I say Shiite, and McCain says Shunnite.

Update, Thursday, 4:19PM -- U. Penn.'s non-partisan, non-profit FactCheck.org debunks one of McCain's claims from the press conference:
John McCain is attacking Barack Obama's opposition to the Kyl-Lieberman amendment, which (among other things) called for labeling Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization. McCain claims that Obama's opposition means that he also opposed calling the IRGC terrorists. We find otherwise.
