Nancy Pelosi: House Speaker, Felon and our Future President?

Posted in: Liberalism, Politics

Our lovely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Damascus last week to discuss foreign policy issues with Syrian President Bashar Assad might be considered felony under the Logan Act, according to a former State Department official.

The Logan Act, initiated by President John Adams in 1798, makes it a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to three years for any American, “without authority of the United States,” to communicate with a foreign government in an effort to influence that government’s behavior on any “disputes or controversies with the United States,” points out Robert F. Turner, former acting assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs.

Additionally, according to WND, members of terrorist organizations whose top leaders live in Syria called Pelosi’s Damascus visit “brave” and “very appreciated,” saying it could bring about “important changes” to America’s foreign policy, including talks with “Middle East resistance groups.”

One quote that really disturbed me was the following:

“Nancy Pelosi understands the area (Middle East) well, more than Bush and Dr. (Condoleeza) Rice,” said Al-Batch, speaking to WND from Gaza. “If the Democrats want to make negotiations with Syria, Hamas, and Hezbollah, this means the Democratic Party understands well what happens in this area and I think Pelosi will succeed. … I hope she wins the next elections.”

Yes, changing our foreign policy with terrorist nations is exactly what we need. What’s next, a weekend visit to the caves of Afghanistan for a two day summit with Bin Laden? Is this the type of leadership we want for our country?
