Today, I read that Nancy Pelosi arrived in Israel and then will be going to Syria:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will visit Syria, a country President Bush has shunned as a sponsor of terrorism, despite being asked by the administration not to go.
Pelosi arrived in Israel on Friday in what is her second fact-finding trip to the Middle East since taking over leadership in the House in January.
I wonder if Nancy Pelosi realizes that you will not be admitted to Syria with an Israeli stamp in your passport?
Syria is still hostile to Israel, and an Israeli passport stamp will keep the intrepid traveler out of Syria entirely.
It would be “hilarious” for many reasons if she was turned away.
It could also be very “interesting” if she is admitted with an Israeli stamp in her passport.
Does she even know about this little fact?
UPDATE: If you are going to cook a goose, you had better be ready to cook a gander. NRO Online is reporting that Republicans are venturing to Syria too:
-- Oak Leaf
…a group of Republican lawmakers has embarked on their own trip to Syria. Michael Lowry, a spokesman for Representative Robert Aderholt, said that the Alabama lawmaker will visit Syria as part of a Republican delegation led by Representative Frank Wolf, a Virginia Republican. Wolf is the top Republican on the House appropriations subcommittee that funds the State Department.
