Can the Democrats possibly get more treasonous than they already are?
Nancy Pelosi answers the question.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warned Army Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on Thursday not to “put a shine on recent events” in Iraq when they testify before Congress next week.
“I hope we don’t hear any glorification of what happened in Basra,” said Pelosi, referring to a recent military offensive against Shiite militants in the city led by the Iraqi government and supported by U.S. forces.
Although powerful Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr agreed to a ceasefire after six days of fighting, Pelosi wondered why the U.S. was caught off guard by the offensive and questioned how the ceasefire was achieved, saying the terms were “probably dictated from Iran.”
Petraeus, the top military commander in Iraq, and Crocker, the U.S. ambassador, will make their return to Capitol Hill on April 8 and 9 to deliver their assessment of the situation on the ground in Iraq.
Yeah Nancy, let’s not dicuss the fact that Muqtada Al Sadr got his ass handed to him by U.S. and Iraqi forces. Gawd forbid that General Petraeus mention that the Mahdi Army was forced to lay down their weapons in less than a week after devastating losses. But it was all Iran’s idea.
Don’t talk about the success of the United States Army in Basra and throughout Iraq.
It might tarnish the Dem’s ‘patriotic’ reputation.
Looks like Pelosi’s Iranian reference was closer than she thought:
IRANIAN forces were involved in the recent battle for Basra, General David Petraeus, the US commander in Iraq, is expected to tell Congress this week.
Military and intelligence sources believe Iranians were operating at a tactical command level with the Shi’ite militias fighting Iraqi security forces; some were directing operations on the ground, they think.
Petraeus intends to use the evidence of Iranian involvement to argue against any reductions in US forces.
