More than you would think. She believes that Iran is responsible for peace in Iraq. Not American troops, but Iran.
Nancy Pelosi: Asshole Extraordinaire.
Pelosi Credits Iran’s “Goodwill” for Surge Success
In an interview yesterday with the San Francisco Chronicle, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claimed the U.S. troop surge failed to accomplish its goal. She then partially credited the success of the troop surge to “the goodwill of the Iranians,” claiming that they were responsible for ending violence in the southern city of Basra.
Asked if she saw any evidence of the surge’s positive impact on her May 17 trip to Iraq she responded:
Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.
The response from the media? Ignorance, as these comments were virtually unreported.
The American media, with few exceptions, is in the pockets of the Democrats. They will lie and cover up every slander, lie, and faux pas to get that party of sickos elected.
