The Pelosi went over to Iraq

Just as the devil went down to Georgia, the Pelosi went over to Iraq.


The one-time Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, got that position by campaigning -- in 2006 -- to end the Iraq War. She was one of the faces of the Democratic Party effort that promised if the American people gave the then-minority party control of just one house of Congress, the Iraq War would end. With just one house, America was told, they would have investigative power and so much more.

Many Americans believed Pelosi & Co -- so many, in fact, that Democrats were not given control of one house, they were given control of both houses of Congress. And in January of 2007, the 110th Congress was sworn in.

Did the Iraq War end?


Has Nancy expressed remorse?


But she visited Iraq today and she did Tweet about it.

Felicia Sonmez (Washington Post) adds, "Traveling with Pelosi are Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (Md.) and Democratic Reps. George Miller (Calif.), Ed Markey (Mass.), Nick Rahall (W.Va.), Anna Eshoo (Calif.), Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Steve Israel (N.Y.) and Cedric Richmond (La.)." Hisham Rikabi (Al Mada) reports that Nance was in Iraq as part of the continued effort "to convince the Iraqi government of the need to keep a number of US troops beyond 2011 and that Nouri told her extending the US presence would require an agreement on the part of all political blocs.
