Treasonous Results: Pelosi Brings Anarchy To U.S. Foreign Policy

Treasonous Results: Pelosi Brings Anarchy To U.S. Foreign Policy

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit with Bashar Assad drew praise from various sectors of the world as a good first step toward peace in the Middle East, but her act of insolent treason brought anarchy to American foreign policy. Pelosi was praised by leaders of the terrorist groups Islamic Jihad and the al Aksa Martyrs Brigade, as reported by WorldNetDaily. These two organizations have carried out every recent terrorist attack in Israel and are based in Syria. And the Syrian Foreign Minister said that Pelosi’s visit took place because Americans and Europeans had realized their policy of isolating Syria has failed. Pelosi also found praise from former President Jimmy Carter, who recently wrote a book in support of the Palestinian terrorists.

Strange how praise for Pelosi’s visit with one of the world’s foremost sponsors of terrorism is coming from the terrorists themselves and a former U.S. President whose bungling of foreign policy thirty years ago accelerated the development of modern terrorism. One has to ask: do these people, Pelosi and the likes of Carter, actually believe they are doing right by legitimizing terrorists and the policies of governments who kill Christians and Jews, who oppress women, who sell children into slavery and prostitution, who sponsor the death of the innocent around the world? Or are they just stupid willing dupes? Or has the desire for fame and power overridden their good sense about America’s national defense?

Here is an example of just how far off track Pelosi is: The Washington Post reports that Pelosi announced she delivered a message to Assad from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that "Israel was ready to engage in peace talks" with Syria. She also announced that Assad was ready to "resume the peace process." The problem: Olmert, according to his office, never entrusted any such message to Pelosi. Olmert’s office told Pelosi that Assad often has said he wanted peace, but there has been no change in his country’s peace policy. The Post concluded, “In other words, Ms. Pelosi not only misrepresented Israel's position but was virtually alone in failing to discern that Mr. Assad's words were mere propaganda.”

Fact is, the Constitution has granted foreign policy power to the chief executive of the nation-the President—for a reason. And the problem is that there are so many 1960’s radical anarchist communist-influenced politicians in Congressional leadership that they believe their personal missions far outweigh the laws of the land. Pelosi not only committed an act of treason by going against American policy toward an enemy during a time of war, she also misrepresented the position of another country to a terrorist-sponsoring regime. Proverbs 30:12 says, “There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.”
