Now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi goes to Iraq on a fact finding mission? With all the criticism of the war now she makes an appearance. Note to Nancy … you will not find the answers in the safe and protected Green Zone.
The Pelosi delegation visited the heavily fortified Green Zone, site of the American Embassy, and met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
“We come out of the meeting with a greater understanding of the others’ point of view,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said, in brief remarks after the meeting.
She said the delegation also came “to convey to our troops the appreciation of the American people for what they’re doing, to applaud their patriotism.”
Who are you kidding? All this said by Pelosi with a straight face. Our troops do not need applause, they need the means to successfully accomplish their goals. Not cut them off at the knees and pull the rug out from underneath them. More from The Gateway Pundit and Pelosi & Murtha On “Goodbye Baghdad” Tour. Michelle Malkin reporting that this should be a great moral boost for the troops. No sarcasm there. More moral boosting comments from My Pet Jawa.
President George W Bush replies, “I’m the decision-maker” about sending more troops to the war.
