When I heard Nancy Pelosi was meeting with Syrian leader Bashar Assad, this week–and heard all of the conservatives and Republicans hemming and hawing about it, you didn’t hear a word of protest from me.
That’s because those conservatives and Republicans are hypocrites. They’ve said nothing to protest any one of the many, many meetings California Republican Congressman Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell” has had with Assad–many of which I’ve written about over the years. And unlike Pelosi, Issa has gushed so much about Assad, you’d think he was Monica Lewinsky leaving one of her Oval Office sessions with Bill Clinton.
And I figured, given the news that Pelosi was meeting with Assad, that we’d soon hear from Jihad Darrell–the crybaby Congressman who raves over Hezbollah–again. Well, Jihad Darrell did not disappoint. The Jihad’s fave Congressman, Issa, met with Assad the day after Pelosi did along with other GOP Congressmen.
Hmmm . . . where are all of my fellow conservatives yelling and screaming about this the way they did with Pelosi? I hear crickets chirping. Ditto for the sounds coming from the White House, also critical of Pelosi.
No-one should be meeting with Assad. No-one from America should be going to Syria. Period.
If a country is 1) on the State Dept. terrorist list, 2) harbors and welcomes every terrorist in the book, including the only living Munich terrorist, 3) allows insurgent terrorists to come in and out of Iraq to kill our troops, and 4) foments international assassinations of officials of a neighboring country it is trying to run through an Islamic terrorist group that murdered hundreds of Americans (Hezbollah), we frankly should NOT be there visiting them–regardless of whom our “visitors” are, unless they are assassins. Not Condi, not Nancy, not Jihad Darrell, not other GOP Congressman, period. None of them.
Syria is home to several fugitives, including Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner, Hamas political director Moussa Abu Marzook, Islamic Jihad chief Ramadan Abdullah Shallah and Jamil Al-Gashey, the only surviving perpetrator of the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre–all wanted and/or indicted in the United States. However, Assad refuses their extradition. Absolutely no reason for us to “dialogue” or whatever BS term they are using, this week, with him.
Read more about Jihad Darrell, and you’ll see he’s far worse than Nancy Pelosi will ever be–as hard as she’s trying to top him.
