Thank you President Bush. Thank you General David Petraeus. And, most of all and most importantly, thank you to the Troops for making it possible for Nancy Pelosi, the woman that said that it was impossible for you to have done what you did, to visit Baghdad so she wouldn't have to endure what Hillary Clinton said she had to endure - you know, dodging sniper fire and all that.

Here is a report from The Hill:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made a surprise visit to Iraq Sunday, focusing on economic issues in a meeting with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
Al-Maliki asked Pelosi to help his war-torn country beat back demands for reparations from neighboring countries for actions taken by Saddam Hussein's regime, according to an Associated Press report.
Pelosi also said the U.S. will need to strengthen intelligence efforts in Iraq as American forces draw down. President Obama has said as many as two-thirds of the American troop presence in Iraq will be home by August 2010.
U.S. forces are supposed to withdraw from cities in Iraq by June 30, though some officials have suggested a recent spike in violence in the country could delay that. General Ray Odierno, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, has said the goal of pulling out by the end of next month is largely on track. [...]
Spike? SPIKE? IS/was there a -- EGADS! -- a SPIKE in violence? WHAT? Under the Obama Clan of Marxists? WHAT?
I wonder why San Fran Nannistan Nanny went to Iraq at this point in time? Could it be that David Feherty struck a chord and Nancy is trying to dispell the FACTS? We will never know...or will we?
Also, I wonder Nanna means by "we have to strengthen intelligence efforts" when the military is being slashed.
Pelosi. Fraud. Liar. Like Gateway says: If ever there was an appropriate time for Iraqis to chuck shoes during a press conference it was today. If Pelosi and Obama had their way, Iraq would be a bloody violent failed state today.
