Nancy Pelosi screwed up on her visit to Syria. There is a reason that she is the Speaker of the House and not the Secretary of State. When she finished her meeting with Syrian President she said she delivered a message from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that Israel was ready for peace talks. The problem is that Israel's Prime Minister didn't entrust Rep. Pelosi with this message.
Before her trip, she was told not to go or establish relations with Syria. But she thought she knew better. She didn't as always.
Syria is only concerned with instability in the middle east and funding terrorism to create problems in the West.
Pelosi doesn't listen to anyone and she is going to bring down the Democratic Party and only create conflict and no chance for a working government over the next two years.
