Were Dems Negotiating With Terrorists?

Were Dems Negotiating With Terrorists?
By James Lewis

What was Nancy Pelosi really doing in Damascus last month? Call me suspicious. But we know that Steny Hoyer, the House Democrat Whip, flew to Cairo at the same time.

It's on the public record that Hoyer talked with Muslim Brotherhood honchos in Egypt. The MB is the parent of Hamas and of much Salafist terrorism. It inspired Al Qaida. If you wanted to negotiate directly with a major branch of Islamist terror, you would fly to Cairo and tell the MB to spread the word to the shadow groups.
So if Hoyer is talking with the Muslim Brotherhood, what's Nancy doing in Damascus at the same time?

Well, there are three things we know about Bashir Assad Jr., the dictator of Syria's Baath paradise.

1. Syria is a major transit point for terrorists heading to Iraq to drive car bombs aiming to kill American troops and Iraqi civilians.
2. Damascus is headquarters to Hamas and other anti-Israel terror groups.
3. Syria has a formal alliance with Iran, the biggest terror sponsor in the world, and regularly sponsors assassinations in Lebanon.

By talking with Bashir Assad, Nancy could send a signal to all those terror groups and their bosses. If you were trying to send a message to Al Qaida and the rest, you would do exactly what Nancy and Steny just did.

I mean where do you find these articles? The Onion? Really, you found this in the Onion, right?

Les, I wouldn't put this past ANYTHING the Dims would do.

This sounds EXACTLY like some self-aggrandizing stunt they'd pull to usurp the President's power. We already know Pelousy wants it, so just keep on tittering....

Hello folks. I told Donal I won't be around for a few days. My wife and I are playing "This old House'' and re-decorating. I got e-mails from some of you about the ''bug'' problem. Its the same person I've always said it was. He's just learned to tone himself down and shifthis focus somewhere else. I wonder why he hasn't come here but I would imagine he knows Mrs.D would b-slap him right out of here. Me too. Batya, be careful, this one is dangerous. If the calls persist, call the police and ask if they have a cyber-crimes unit. Or contact the FBI. You're an Israeli as well as an American. You're tough and I'm sure you don't scare easily but be on guard. I'll be praying for you. See you all in a few days. Love you all, Johnnymac.

les, I don't know if you're a poster at FPM, but there is an Iranian whose screen name is SAM111 and he's living in the Iranian stronghold in Iraq called's in the news from time to time, and he emails us from there with fascinating stuff. THe man's 100% authentic..I'm a nut for details and he's provided me personally with the proof. He knew about an ambush of Iraq workers en route to the compound before the news picked it up, for was terrible and he was depressed for days. Lots of these examples.

ANyway, SAM has been telling us there that our Left IS negotiating with the likes of Assad, and worse, and even I"VE said "You are CRAZY!". More and more, even some of the lefties have been asking him pretty probing questions showing they're getting a whiff of something true.

I personally STILL can't imagine any American going this far, but this fits SO well with what he's been saying for 2 years..including Biden, by the way, and Kerry. He suggests they are so invested in losing this war for Bush that they've made it more difficult for our troops. I know that sounds nuts, as much as I disrespect the left, especially THESE guys, it's a shame I'm even feeling there might be some truth in this awful article.

But, there are few conservative journalists who investigate as well and thoroughly as the leftist ones do to nail every single thing this government does, so we may never know. Maybe some Americans think that's a good thing. I think it's unAmerican. I sincerely hope I"m wrong and, if I"m right, I hope it does come out.

He also, SAM, says he feels the Iraq war was a mistake, but that he greatly admires Bush for staying the course, he absolutely feels it would be disaster for them there were we to leave. You should check the site out and read SAM's posts.

CHING--Thank you for visiting! And thank you for asking if you could post your link.

As your site is primarily an information site about China, at this point, you are welcome to paste your link here.

I should say that my site is mostly an American political site and we support the conservative agenda, President Bush, and the global war on terror.

Pelosi and Hoyer were attempting to set up a shadow government. And the present government didn't call them on it. ARRRGGGHHHH!!!

AoW--I agree with you; I definitely thought they had a hidden agenda. Ahmadinejad as much as said so when he stated last week that he wanted to meet with Congress--Congress--not the President and his staff...

So, why is Condi talking with the same folks? Why did the Iraq Study Group say to talk to Syria?

You know, there is an old saying, "keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer". Bush who always seems to want to govern by these old folksy sayings just doesnt get it. He wont talk to anyone who doesnt do his bidding. Just incredibly dumb. Why wont he listen to history?

LES--Because you don't legitimize a terrorist state by negotiating with as if it were one--that's why.

You dont legititmize talking to a terrorist state...unless you do. Think Reagan and Iran, think Condi and Syria, think Republican delegagtion and Syria, think Nixon and China, think Nixon and North Vietnam. The list is endless...but these were diplomats, true statesmen, not incompetent, cliche quoting [fill in the blank]...

LES--Grow up. A terrorist state is a different thing than simply our enemy. Of course we've negotiated with our enemies. Syria etc. are different--and if they want to have access to us, they've got a few things they need to do on their own, too.
