Look Who Is Going To Syria Along With Pelosi

From Lebanon’s Ya Libnan:

U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi flying in to Lebanon

Friday, 30 March, 2007 @ 3:17 PM

Beirut – U.S. Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi is expected to visit Beirut next week as part of a tour to the Middle East that includes Syria, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia…

The congressional delegation that accompanies the Speaker includes:

Congressman, Democrat Keith Ellison from Minnesota- US ‘s first Muslim congressman.
Congressman, Democrat Nick Rahall from West Virginia, is of Lebanese descent
Congressman, Democrat Tom Lantos from California who is Jewish is chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee
Congressman, Democrat Henry Waxman from California who is also Jewish
Congressman, Republican David Hobson from Ohio

Congressman Rahall was active last summer in trying to end the war between Hezbollah & Israel. He also came out against a bipartisan congressional resolution in July 2006 supporting Israel during the Second Lebanon War. During the war he wrote a letter to President George W. Bush calling on him to tell Prime Minister Ehud Olmert “that enough is enough. It is time for the disproportionate use of violence to end and for negotiations to begin.”

The exact date of Pelosi arrival into Beirut has not been announced as of yet, most probably for security reasons…

Pelosi’s visit is aimed at becoming better acquainted with regional issues in addition to discussing U.S. aid programs in Lebanon and other countries.

According to some reports the White House tried to convince Pelosi to cancel her stopover in Syria. But when it failed to do so, it urged the delegation to send a “strong message” to the Assad regime about the human rights situation there and the country’s interference in Lebanon’s internal affairs

Yes, that will happen for sure.

By the way, how many Presidents, how many Secretaries of State do we have?
