Trip to Syria

The speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi, did it exactly right this week. One of the suggestions on this website from the beginning is that if we are to overcome the terrorist threat, it needs to come from within the ranks of conservative Muslims. Enlisting help from conservative Muslims that do not directly support terrorism is the smartest thing any leader could have done. It is no surprise that the Republican administration frowned on such a visit. Interestingly enough, Iran also released their British prisoners during her visit as an "Easter gift." Bravo Nancy.
